First Person: Conversations with Survivors

The Museum’s First Person program enables visitors to hear Holocaust survivors tell their life stories in their own words, uniting personal experience with history in a way that is extraordinary in its immediacy and power. Each hour-long program features a live interview between journalist Bill Benson and a survivor, followed by a question-and-answer session.

Watch recordings of live streamed programs of Steven FenvesAgi Geva, and Estelle Laughlin. Hear more interviews in our First Person podcast series.
