Trzy tygodnie temu USC Shoah Foundation zorganizowała w Polsce obchody 70. rocznicy wyzwolenia Nazistowskiego obozu Auschwitz. A w ubiegłym tygodniu pracownicy Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich POLIN odwiedzili nas.
Over the last few days I’ve overheard my grandmother and father talk endlessly about Celia Tiano, an Auschwitz survivor from Salonika, Greece, their next-door neighbor on 7th Avenue -- a quiet block in the Hyde Park area of L.A., during the 1950s and 60s. After more than 40 years, my family has reconnected with Celia -- through testimony. We were able to make this connection because of a film project I had been working on for the Student Voices Short Film Contest.
You never know what you are going to discover in the Visual History Archive. Each one of the 53,000 testimonies in the Archive tells a different story of life before, during and after the individual’s experience with genocide.
