Meet Steven Howell
Jewish survivor Paula Lebovics, Jewish survivor Howard Chandler, Jewish survivor Philip Helbling, Political prisoner Kaz Wolff-Zdzienicki, and Sinti and Roma survivor Julia Lentini recall their experiences of the evacuation and liberation of the Auschwitz camp complex in January 1945. Otari Amaglobeli of the Soviet Armed forces describes his involvement in the liberation of the camp complex on Jan. 27, 1945. This testimony clip reel was produced in partnership with The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi German concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz.
Steven Howell realized how important it is to teach the Holocaust when he encountered anti-Semitism in his own classroom.
