Remembering Samuel Willenberg

Monday, February 22, 2016

The Who Do You Think You Are? production team are saddened by the passing of Samuel Willenberg, the last survivor of the Treblinka Death-Camp.

It was a great honour and privilege to meet and film with Samuel for Andrew Denton’s Who Do You Think You Are? episode. His appearance in this program had a powerful impact on all who watched, stimulating much reflection on this dark chapter in history. Samuel truly was an inspiring and noble man who will never be forgotten.
