First Thought Talk with Tomi Reichental

Tomi Reichental is one of the last remaining Holocaust survivors living in Ireland. Although silent about his experiences for decades, Reichental is now speaking out.

In this First Thought Talk from GIAF18, Reichental speaks with human rights lawyer Saul Woolfson about his experiences in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp and what he thinks about politics in our modern age.

A documentary about Tomi’s attempts to meet one of his jailers, Close to Evil, has been shown on TV and in cinemas throughout the world and helped again to raise the profile of the Holocaust.
