A Train Near Magdeburg: A Teacher’s Journey into the Holocaust and the Reuniting of the Survivors and Liberators, 70 Years On
Maybe you've seen the photograph before. It has been used by Holocaust museums and memorials all over the world, in books, magazines, and documentaries. It’s all over social media platforms. But no one ever saw it publicly until Matthew Rozell sat down to interview the World War II veterans who were present when it was taken. They were there. They saw what happened. And they acted in the middle of a shooting war. More importantly, Rozell has chronicled the whole story behind what it really means and helped to reunite the soldiers with the people that they saved six decades after that fateful spring morning in 1945.
Award-winning teacher and historian, Matthew Rozell will give a presentation about the extraordinary story behind an iconic 1945 photograph, which records the whole incredible story about Holocaust survivors left to die on a train in Nazi Germany and the America soldiers that liberated them.
