Summary

Help Key Stage 3/4 history students discover the life of one of the few British Jews who were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp during World War II.

Leon Greenman, who died aged 97 in 2008, was a survivor from Auschwitz in 1945. His wife and child tragically died at the hands of the Nazis, and for the rest of Leon's life he was determined to warn and educate people about racism.

Ruth-Anne Lenga from the Jewish Museum examines the artefacts found in Leon's house, including books, documents and notes from different stages in his long life.
