Moving accounts

Absolutely moving. In a time when so many ugly political trends are reasserting themselves, it's vitally important to hear these stories, and to hear them told by the people who actually lived them. Accounts told to us by third parties could never come close to communicating the horrors of the Holocaust. The range of perspectives — survivors, liberators, etc. -- also helps to provide a more well rounded understanding of this shocking historical period. Everyone must listen and subscribe!

A MOVING AND EXQUISITELY PRODUCED PODCAST

I will be listening to every one of your podcasts and I hope thousands of others do the same. I will tell my friends via social media.

If I may make one additional comment: in the intro podast the narrator says that the Holocaust was the worst genocide of its kind in history. Sadly, this isn't true. Stalin intentionally, deliberately and willully murdered over six million Ukranians, men, women and children, in a 24 month period in '32-33. Some scholars put the number at 12 million. Ukranians call it Holodomor, which means to kill by starvation. Mao did the same also in a 24 month period in the early '50's. The figure six million is used but, again, scholars believe it was a much higher number. None of this is mean to detract in any way for the important and moving podcast series you have started.
