‘Memory Unearthed’ Shines Light on a Dark Chapter of WWII

Clip: 10/01/2019 | 3m 58s | Video has closed captioning.

When the Nazis made a ghetto in the central Polish city of Lodz, one man trapped inside took thousands of pictures. Henryk Ross had an official capacity as an ID photographer, but he risked his life to take other photos that documented the truth. We see some of those photos at the exhibit “Memory Unearthed” at the Illinois Holocaust Museum.
