In case any of you are interested, there's a new feature documentary with Tomi Reichental on RTE One tonight.

Condemned to Remember follows Holocaust survivor Tomi Reichental as he celebrates his 80th birthday in a Dublin Mosque and then embarks on an epic journey across a Europe, visiting Germany, Poland and Slovakia, assessing the plight of refugees, and journeying to Bosnia where he embraces Muslim survivors of a genocide, still searching for the bones of their loved ones. Along the way he meets Professor Jan Gross, who's been in the news a bit lately (Holocaust law wields a 'blunt instrument' against Poland's past - BBC News).

Here's a trailer:

The documentary where he visited the former Nazi guard in Germany was superb, if this is half as good, it'll be well worth watching.

The OP mentioned that he was posting "in case any of you are interested."

...

Oh yes, and you have just neatly demonstrated what an utter plonker you are.
If I did an OP like that it would be sent to the Zoo

- no context from the contributor at all

You are supposed to give your opinion 1st

- this was not done

- why?

And stop being so Rude!

Tomi is a remarkable man - very gentle, dignified and humane. When you meet him and talk to him you can't help but be impressed with his courage and committment to ensuring that the horrors of the Holocaust are not forgotten and the current dangers of the rise of far right in Europe are not ignored.

The far right in Europe and the far left much closer to home.

I read his book "I was a boy in Belsen" about two years, borrowed it from a family member, it was a signed copy so I had to give it back. It was an amazing story and one told without bitterness or anger but from the perspective of the innocence of a child and what he went through, but the book would leave any reader emotionally drained.

One of the most poignant parts of the book was the bit about the "latrine dolls", he thought girls were throwing their unwanted dolls into the toilets when they could have been given to other children. It took a while to realize that they were dead babies born to emaciated mothers unable to feed them, and with no hope of survival.

Hopefully, it's on real player and I can check it out.
