In partnership with Legasee

Webinar series: Untold stories of the Second World War

Event Type: CPD

Takes Place: 18th January 2021

Time: 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Venue: Online

Description: In this webinar, Martyn Cox will talk about three very different encounters with witnesses to Holocaust-related events. Two were with interviewees for his recent Royal British Legion films: Marzenna Schejbal who fought in the Warsaw Uprising, and Robin Fassam, a RAF photographer who helped document the liberation of the concentration camp at Bergen-Belsen. He will focus mainly on his third encounter, which was ten years ago when he first visited Le Chambon-sur-Lignon in south-central France, which has since been described as a little village which “… saved people’s lives without killing or hurting or hating anybody”. Between December 1940 and September 1944, the inhabitants of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon and the villages, hamlets and farms on the surrounding Plateau Vivarais-Lignon sheltered literally thousands of refugees, the majority Jewish, including many children.
