Holocaust Interviews (USA)

Patricia Iannaci always liked history and TV production — both her parents were teachers in those subjects — but she readily admits to never being the best student.  But when she took an honors class at Bayonne (N.J.) High School during her junior year, everything changed. That class was about the Holocaust. The teacher, Gene Woods, would interview and record Holocaust survivors, and Iannaci was quickly fascinated not just by the subject, but by the very method of archiving these histories. Eventually, Woods, Iannaci and her father worked together to make a handful of documentaries to display at Bayonne City Hall each year. “All of them had really incredible stories,” she said. “I didn’t even know I wanted to do documentaries before then.”  For full story click here.
