Impact in Profile
Meet Jennifer Craig-Norton
Students are introduced to a Holocaust survivor named Roman Kent, who survived the Lodz ghetto, Auschwitz and being separated from his family, in this Information Quest.
Jewish survivor, Roman Kent and his family were deported from the Lodz ghetto to Auschwitz, a journey that took several days in crowded and dark cattle cars. Roman describes the moment the cattle car door’s opened and the utter chaos of arriving to Auschwitz. This is the 11th testimony clip in the series 70 Days of Testimony: Leading up to the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz.
From her master’s thesis to the Holocaust workshops she leads for students in England, the Visual History Archive has always been an important part of Jennifer Craig-Norton’s work.
