Wednesday, July 18 | 11:30am - 1:30pm | At the Henry and Sandra Friedman Holocaust Center for Humanity
Karen Treiger shares the riveting story of her mother- and father-in-law, Esther and Sam Goldberg. Sam was drafted into the Soviet army, but when Germany invaded the Soviet Union, he was captured and sent to a prisoner of war camp. Sam escaped the camp but was later rounded up and sent to Treblinka. In August 1943, during the Treblinka revolt, Sam escaped to the forest, where he met Esther, who had established a hiding place with the support of the non-Jewish Stys families. Sam joined her and they lived in hiding until their liberation in 1944. Karen traveled to Poland in 2016 to meet the Stys'.
