From the USHMM: Watch Live | A story of surviving German-occupied Poland

First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors


During our next First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors, Halina Peabody will discuss her mother’s efforts to keep Halina and her younger sister safe in German-occupied Poland.

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, February 16, 1 p.m. ET
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s YouTube page



Learn how Halina and her family obtained false papers identifying them as Catholic, survived a close brush with a Nazi sympathizer, and relied on the kindness of strangers to hide in plain sight. Watch live and ask Halina 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.
