Ohrdruf Extended: Geoffrey Megargee confirmed for 4/4

16P-207

Dr. Geoffrey Megargee talks about his research at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

A week ago I announced two screenings of my film “16 Photographs At Ohrdruf” at Lesley University on April 4, 2013. You can read more here, and I’ll have some specifics regarding times very soon. April 4 is the 68th anniversary of the liberation of Ohrdruf concentration camp.

Today I’m excited to announce that we’ve confirmed Geoffrey Megargee to speak on April 4, and offer a presentation on his work editing the astounding “United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos.” Dr. Megargee appears in the film, along with his colleague Dr. Joseph White, and it’s an amazing honor to have Geoff speak at the first-ever screenings of the film.

If you want to acquaint yourself with Dr. Megargee and his work, here is an interview on CSPAN from 2009, talking about the Encyclopedia.

Watch the new film “16 Photographs At Ohrdruf” at Lesley University’s Marran Theater on April 4, 2013. There will be a screening in the afternoon, and an evening screening preceded by a presentation by Dr. Geoffrey Megargee of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
