In November 2018, Ben Cohen went to Germany to witness the opening of the trial of Dr. Johann Rehbogen, a former Nazi guard from Stuttof Concentration Camp accused of accessory to murder. To his surprise, Ben was the only family member of any survivor to be there. He will tell the story of his grandmother, Judy Meisel, retracing her harrowing survival of Stuttof, her life-long commitment to equal rights and justice, and how, at age 90, she became a star witness in what maybe the last trial of a former Nazi guard in Germany.
Ben Cohen grew up in St. Louis Park, MN and is now a documentary filmmaker based in Brooklyn, NY. He is the editor of a website dedicated to telling Judy’s story at judymeisel.com and is currently producing a new documentary film about Judy’s participation as an eye-witness in the last Nazi trials in Germany.
