Watch Live | First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors

First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors


During our next First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors, Albert Garih will talk about his experiences as a young child in France, who was forced to flee his home while separated from his father.

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.


WHEN: Wednesday, June 9, 
1 p.m. ET
WHERE: United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s YouTube page



Albert was not even two years old when his family escaped Paris amid gunfire during the German invasion. After returning to Nazi-occupied Paris, Albert’s father was deported to a forced labor camp, and the rest of the family spent the war in hiding, sometimes in poor conditions and on the run. Watch live and ask Albert 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.
