First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors

During our next First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors, Theodora (Dora) Klayman will talk about her experiences while living in hiding after her parents were deported.

Each episode of First Person features a one-hour discussion with a survivor, facilitated by journalist Bill Benson. Guests also answer questions from the audience, live during the program.

Wednesday, May 12, 1 p.m. ET
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s YouTube page

Dora 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. Watch live and ask Dora a question.

You do not need a YouTube account to view our program. After the live broadcast, it will be available to watch on demand on the Museum's YouTube page.

First Person is made possible through generous support from the Louis Franklin Smith Foundation, with additional funding from the Arlene and Daniel Fisher Foundation.
