Seventy-seven years after the defeat of Nazi Germany, most living Holocaust survivors were children during the war. Many of these children survived because they were hidden. For years, the experiences of hidden children were not given the serious attention they deserved because, for the most part, theirs was not a concentration camp experience, and as children, the importance of their experiences was often minimized. More recently, there is a fuller understanding of the circumstances that hidden children lived through. Join us as we explore the different ways children attempted to survive during the Holocaust. We will hear from former hidden children and learn how their experiences affected their lives in the postwar years and into adulthood.
