Watch Live | A Holocaust Survivor Recalls Kristallnacht


First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors


During our next First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors, Susan Warsinger will recall her memories of being smuggled out of Germany to France after the violence that erupted on Kristallnacht.


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



Learn how, after her house was attacked by her own neighbors, Susan and her brother fled to a children’s home in a Paris suburb and, as the Nazis approached, stayed with other refugees in the palace at Versailles. Watch live and ask Susan 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.
