Leon Greenman Has Died

DD2 met Leon Greenman, an English Auschwitz survivor who also survived being interned in five other camps also, on a school RE trip to London a few years ago. She said he was a lovely, kind and gentle man, who made it his mission to inform youngsters of the horrors of the concentration camps and to dispel the misinformation/ revision of history which seeks to deny that the Holocaust ever took place.

He made a great impression upon DD2, and upon all our family through the things she was able to tell us about his life and experiences.

May he rest in peace.
Memory eternal !

My grandfather was with an Allied detachment that liberated Dachau near the end of WWII.
