On September 1, 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland, triggering
World War II. About a year later, 11-year-old Estelle Laughlin was among
the 400,000 Jews from Warsaw and the surrounding area forced into a ghetto
measuring just 1.3 square miles. She was one of the few children to survive
the Warsaw ghetto.
During our next First
Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors, on the 82nd
anniversary of the invasion, Estelle will talk about her life as a Jewish
girl under Nazi occupation. Amid starvation and squalid conditions in the
ghetto, the Nazis began deporting the residents to the Treblinka killing
center in July 1942.
