Calling All Students: Send Questions For Schlöndorff Documentary About Our Honorary Member

Dear Students, Azubis, Headmasters and Teachers,

since due to the ongoing pandemic still no public events may take place, including the remembrance day on 27 January 2021 regarding the Liberation of Auschwitz, we are inviting you all to a very special joint project:

On 20 February 2021 our Honorary Member Leon Schwarzbaum will celebrate his 100th birthday.

He not only is one of the last living survivors of the Shoah, but also of the Concentration Camp Auschwitz which has been liberated on 27 January 1945 by the Red Army.

On the occasion of his birthday, an oral history interview will take place, which will be lead by the famous and Oscar-winning director Volker Schlöndorff, who has been born in Wiesbaden.

Leon Schwarzbaum cordially invites you all to ask him questions about his experiences in Auschwitz and the Shoah in general, which will become part of this interview.
