At our monthly Speaker Series, hear Holocaust survivors share their life stories in their own words.

On November 12, Gabriella Major will share her history. Born in Debrecen, Hungary during WWII, she was deported with her mother and grandmother by cattle cars to a concentration camp near Vienna after many months of living in a ghetto. Eventually her family was liberated by the Russians. After reuniting with her father, the family lived in Hungry under Russian occupation. In 1956 the Hungarian Revolution broke out and the family immigrated to the U.S. in 1957.
