Legacy of the Holocaust

A note from Leon

Created by    Ruth-Anne Lenga 

The powerful story of Leon Greenman, ‘an Englishman in Auschwitz’, continues with this short film which recounts a remarkable discovery and encourages students to reflect on his enduring loss.

The diverse elements of this stimulus material can used to help students respond to the film in a myriad of ways to open up conversation about the impact and legacies of the Holocaust.

This is part of a series of classroom materials centred on exploring the theme of the ‘Legacy of the Holocaust’.
