  • Grant Summary:

    This documentary tells the story of Henny Simon, a Colchester Jewish Holocaust survivor, Hartford WWII veteran Ben Cooper, and their efforts to share their experiences with the general public and students. Their efforts were spurred by the rise of Holocaust denial, racism, and anti-Semitism. We will document and preserve public histories about the Holocaust so that through minutely focused personal stories, the public will have a deeper understanding of the dangers of fascism and racism.
