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.
