In an instant, the life of 13-year-old Irene Weiss changed forever when she and her sister, Serena, were assigned to a work detail, and a Nazi guard sent many other family members to their immediate deaths at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
“We asked the other prisoners when we would see our families,” Irene remembers. “A woman pointed to the chimney and said, ‘Do you see the smoke? There is your family.’”
During this live conversation, hear Irene’s personal story of survival as a teen in Hungary and what happened to her large family during the Holocaust.
