Holocaust Memorial Day 2017: John Simm reads the words of Sigrid Falkenstein

Holocaust Memorial Day Trust
27 Jan 2017

For Holocaust Memorial Day 2017, John Simm reads the words of Sigrid Falkenstein.

Researching her family history, Sigrid Falkenstein found her aunt’s name – Anna Lehnkering – on a list of 30,000 people who were murdered by the Nazis as part of the Aktion T4 project in the year 1940/1941. This spurred Sigrid on to find out more both about her Aunt and Aktion T4, the Nazi programme for sterilising and murdering those with mental or physical disabilities.
