Holocaust Research & Education Foundation

Our documentary series showcases some elements of history that are often overlooked.

Working on large scale field research projects, has given us a unique perspective on post war destruction of buildings and areas associated with the Holocaust. For example, whilst inspecting the areas of the Auschwitz Sub-Camps, we arrived at locations at the point where many were or had just been demolished leaving no trace for future generations to discover. One of our actions of remembrance is to document what remains for posterity and encouragement to perhaps save existing structures and grounds wherever we feel it is important to do so.

Our documentary series showcases some of our work that highlights this matter, often showing places that are unknown or at least elements of history that are often overlooked.

Here, we explore the grounds of the former Chełmno (in German, Kulmhof) Death camp. We look at the towns and ghettos where the inhabitants were sent from as well as the local towns surrounding the village of Chełmno such as Koło and Grabów. The death camp existed over two periods of the Holocaust in multiple locations around the village that we look at in their post war existence.

The Łódź Ghetto Documentary

Unlike Warsaw, Białystok and other ghettos around Poland, many buildings and infrastructures in the Łódź ghetto remained intact after the war. In recent years, modern urbanisation has threatened the existence of important buildings. We look at the current situation, focusing on what can still be seen today and how they operated during the Ghettos existence.
