    Join documentary filmmaker and Lesley faculty member Matt Nash for the premier of “16 Photographs at Ohrdruf,” a look at the powerful story of the soldiers who uncovered the Holocaust.

    With only a small stack of his grandfather's photos for guidance in making this documentary, Lesley University professor Matthew Nash sought to understand a family secret that began on April 4, 1945. His search revealed the horror of Ohrdruf, the first concentration camp found by the Allies, and the amazing story of the soldiers who uncovered the Holocaust.
    Free and open to the public, the film screening of “16 Photographs at Ohrdruf” and related lecture will be held on Thursday, April 4 at 6 p.m. in Marran Theater on Lesley University’s Doble Campus, 34 Mellen Street, Cambridge. To register, please visit www.lesley.edu/16photos.
    The lecture preceding the screening will feature Dr. Geoffrey Megargee of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., who will speak about “The Universe of Nazi Camps and Ghettos,” putting the documentary in context and illustrating the vast scope and variety of Nazi camps of detention, persecution, and murder, of which Ohrdruf was a part.
