Paul Sobol, 93 years old, is a Holocaust survivor. His parents and a brother died in Nazi concentration camps. On Monday, 27 January, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Mr. Sobol will share his story at UN Geneva at 4pm. Please register if you wish to attend.
Next week the CinéONU will screen The Accountant of Auschwitz; a gripping look at the race against time to prosecute the last living Nazi war criminals before it’s too late. There will be discussions about accountability.
