Speilberg's Shoah Foundation chose Henry as Top Story

In compiling research for our film project, An Unbroken Chain: The Movie, we discovered that Henry was selected by Steven Speilberg's University of South California Shoah Foundation as one of the top 5 testimonies of over 55,000 for an online exhibit that is still available today.

Surviving Auschwitz: 5 personal journeys follows the lives of 5 Holocaust survivors before, during and after their deportation to Auschwitz, and other concentration camps. It also traces their experiences to five different continents after their liberation. In addition to first person video testimonies, the exhibit includes an interactive map glossary, photographs, and biological profiles that provide further context and understanding. Surviving Auschwitz is designed for students grades 8 through 12, as well as the general public.

There is also a teacher's guide available with the exhibit.

Many people have suggested that we contact Speilberg himself about Henry's amazing story, and we plan to do just that.
