During our next First Person: Conversations with Holocaust
Survivors, Irene Fogel Weiss will talk about her experiences as
a teen in Hungary and what happened to her large family when faced with
selection and separation at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
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.
Irene was only 13 when Nazi collaborators shaved her hair soon
after she entered an overcrowded Hungarian ghetto. Her mother gave her a
scarf to wear around her bald head, making her look older and potentially
saving her life when Irene was later sent to a killing center. Watch live and ask Irene 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.
