A Conversation Among Survivors: Holocaust Survivors Share Experiences

Three Holocaust survivors will meet again for a continuing dialogue about their experiences about how the Holocaust shaped their lives. 
 
The Suffolk Center on the Holocaust, Diversity & Human Understanding, Inc. introduced several Holocaust survivors to each other last May and brought them together for a conversation about their diverse experiences as victims of the Nazi effort to exterminate the Jewish people.  Had it not been for the Holocaust, the stories of their lives would have been entirely different. 
 
The participants will be:
 
Werner Reich, now of Smithtown, was born in Germany, moved to Yugoslavia, and was sent to Terezin Czechoslovakia, the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, and Mauthausen.
 
Hannah Robinson, now of Sound Beach, was born in Germany, and at nine years old her parents sent her with her brother to England, on the Kindertransport.
 
Ruth Minsky Sender, now of East Setauket, was born in Poland, was forced to live in the Lodz Ghetto, the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, the Mittelsteine and Grafenort work camps, and a displaced persons camp in Germany.
