The Other Schindlers

This week, in honour of Holocaust memorial day, James is joined once again by Agnes Grunwald-Spier to discuss her experiences in the Holocaust and the work she's done since researching those from non-Jewish communities who risked their lives to help the jewish community during the Holocaust. These so called 'Other Schindlers' risked their own lives, and the lives of their families to hide Jewish peoples during the horrific events of World War Two. Agnes was being born in the Budapest Ghetto, liberated by the Russians and survived the Holocaust. She talks about her and her mother's experiences in the Ghetto along with exploring a small number of the thousands of stories detailing those 'Other Schindlers' and the life saving work they did.


Due to the nature of this episode some distressing topics are addressed including suicide and rape.
