The Holocaust: A Teenager's Experience
Holocaust survivor David Bergman, only 12 years old when the Nazis forced his family from their home, takes viewers along his "road from hell to freedom." Illustrated with archival footage and drawings, this affecting program describes how young David was separated from his family at Auschwitz, forced into labor at several work camps, survived a harrowing train journey on which all but three passengers died, and eventually witnessed the German surrender. Warning: Some graphic footage. (30 min)
