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.
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.
