More than 65 years after the Holocaust, hatred, antisemitism, and genocide still threaten our world. The life stories of Holocaust survivors transcend the decades and remind us of the constant need to be vigilant citizens and to stop injustice, prejudice, and hatred wherever and whenever they occur.
This podcast series features excerpts from interviews with Holocaust survivors presented at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s public program First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors.
