One Response to Honouring Esther: End of Project Exhibition

  1. Peter Jackson says:

    Dear Lorna and Richard,

    Thank you very much for details of your end of project exhibition which I will do my best to get to at least one day. Maybe Holocaust Memorial Day itself would be the best one. Meanwhile, congratulations on a great achievement.

    I now have an apology to make to you. I said I would translate Herr Krizsan’s book on the death marches, or rather the section on the Waldeslust march. I have to say that I forgot to do it before other things began to occupy my time. I have now made a start and will finish it as soon as I can and send it to you. I am very sorry about this. I had no idea that there were so many death marches through Winsen to Bergen-Belsen in the late winter and spring of 1945. What madness was it that caused the Germans to do this, to force thousands of concentration camp prisoners to walk or go by other means covering long distances to Belsen when the allies were so close anyway.

    All the very best to you both. It is a privilege to know you and good luck in any future projects you may be considering, whether Holocaust related or otherwise.

    Peter
