In dialogue with Marianne Wilke

Documentary About the Life of Aage Jørgensen

In 1945, shortly after his liberation from the Neuengamme concentration camp, Aage Jørgensen wrote down his experiences during the imprisonment. These notes remained unread for over 40 years, until they were found again. On Friday, the survivor visited the Memorial with his son and a Canadian film crew.
