Meet Tony Cole
Genocide survivors' testimonies are often cited in research papers and books - but that's not the only way they can be used. The Place and Media in Remembering Genocide panel will introduce three projects that incorporate survivor memories into specific locations and forms of media.
Henry Kress reflects on returning to his home in Poland after liberation and found a stranger living in his family home. Henry also describes how he reunited with a friend and former prisoner from Auschwitz, who helped him find work.
Tony Cole has found IWitness to be an effective and powerful tool to teach his students with significant learning challenges about the Holocaust.
