Theodora (Dora) Klayman was only three years old when she last saw her mother and father. While she was visiting grandparents, her parents were arrested by Nazi collaborators in Croatia. Dora and her baby brother spent the rest of the war hiding with family and neighbors—sometimes cowering in corners as bullets pierced through windows.

Join Dora for a live conversation to learn about her Holocaust experiences and how she survived in hiding while many of her family were deported and killed in camps.

Speaker
Theodora Klayman, Holocaust Survivor and Museum Volunteer

Moderator
Bill Benson, Journalist and Host, First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors
