Stories of the Holocaust
February 14, 2011
Every year, there are fewer people alive to tell their stories. This episode records the heartbreaking and sometimes heroic memories of Pittsburgh-area people who experienced the Holocaust. Among those who share their memories: Fritz Ottenheimer, who escaped Nazi Germany in 1939 and returned as an American soldier; Moshe Baran, a Jewish man who fought with the partisans against the Nazis; Sam Gottesman, who survived Auschwitz and other labor camps with his father, Isaak.
