Shoah (53:00 mp3):

Men in campsRabbi Samuel Cohon of Too Jewish Radio, presents stories of survivors, for Holocaust Remembrance Day:

In “Descended from the Holocaust” Dr. Alan Berkenwald records his trip with his parents to the Holocaust Museum — it was first time they talked openly about their experience in the concentration camps; this audio diary is of Jay Allison’s Life Stories.

“Yom Hashoah 1994” is Shoah services in Billings MT and Cleveland OH, survivor interviews, and the story of the Billings communities united “Not in Our Town” response that stopped a series of anti-Jewish crimes. The Rhino Records documentary project “Voices of the Shoah: Remembrances of the Holocaust” is drawn from interviews with 180 survivors.

Also survivors sing Hebrew, for the first time in years, in a live May 1945 BBC report by Patrick Gordon Walker from the just liberated “Belsen Concentration Camp.”

Are there any stories being recorded or told by the Survivors of the Ukrainian Forced Labor Camps, in Nazi Germany. Both my parents were in these camps for 5 years and on the verge of death when the American forces arrived in 1945.
I would love to be able to get my mothers stories witnessed. She is now 88 and I feel at a loss as where to find here with telling her story.

Millions of Ukrainians died in the Holocaust but am not sure they are considered Holocaust survivors?

I’m driven to document her courage,intelligence and spirit.
Sincerely, Maria Trusz’s Daughter Stephanie
