First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors
During our next First
Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors, Rachel (Rae)
Goldfarb will talk about her experiences as a Jewish girl under Nazi
occupation and how her mother’s quick thinking helped them escape from two
ghettos and later join a group of partisan fighters.
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.

Rae Goldfarb was ten years old when the Nazis occupied her
Polish hometown. They forced Jews into a small area designated as a ghetto,
which included Rae’s family home. Fearing for their safety after mass
killings began, Rae’s mother hid the family behind a double wall between
their home and what had been the warehouse of the fabric business they were
forced to close. Watch live and ask Rae a question.
