    Videotape testimony of Tony K., a professor of history at University of Southampton, who was born in Manchester in 1960. Mr. K. recalls involvement in the anti-racist movement; attending University of Sheffield; interest in the Holocaust resulting from Jewish student politics and faculty mentors; studying in the United States in the early 1980s; his doctoral dissertation at Sheffield on antisemitism in Britain during World War II which resulted in his first book; Bill Williams influencing him in oral history; a one-year position at the Manchester Jewish Museum resulting in rescuing archival materials, completing oral testimonies and mounting an exhibit, “Before the Holocaust”; joining the faculty at Southampton in 1986 to promote the use of an enormous collection of Judaica complied by James Parkes; using testimonies for the course he designed; changing attitudes in Britain leading to more focus on the Holocaust, both publicly and academically, resulting in large museum exhibits and required high school course; and the Holocaust becoming a moral paradigm, a phenomena about which he has written.
