In San Diego, we have approximately 500 Holocaust Survivors and Jewish Nazi Victims living among us. Each Survivor has a unique story of strife, unimaginable cruelty and loss, and personal perseverance. Sandy Scheller, daughter of Holocaust Survivor Ruth Sax z”l, and curator of ‘Project Ruth’ at the Chula Vista Library, is making it her mission to get to know as many of them as possible.
Recently, Sandy interviewed Harry Rosen, who, at the age of 97, can still vividly recount his experience and memories as a persecuted Jew during WWII. Please take a moment to watch the video below and visit Sandy's website to learn more. If you know a Survivor who wants to be interviewed email Sandy.
