In May 1944, Peter Feigl, a Jewish teenager, waited for his chance to run to freedom after years spent hiding from the Nazis in France. When the dogs barked, signaling a Nazi guard change at the French border, he sprinted amid gunfire towards neutral Switzerland.

Join Peter for a live conversation to learn about his Holocaust experiences and how he survived in hiding without his parents or extended family.

Speaker
Peter Feigl, Holocaust Survivor and Museum Volunteer

Moderator
Bill Benson, Journalist and Host, First Person
