David Wiener was born on May 30, 1926, in Lodz, Poland, one of Moshe Chaim and Hannah Sur Wiener’s nine children. When he was thirteen, David escaped alone from Lodz, which had been turned into a ghetto in February 1940. During the war, David survived slave labor camps, prison, and Auschwitz. His parents and all but one of his siblings were murdered by the Nazis. After the war, David immigrated to the U.S., married, had two children, and became a successful businessman. David will be in conversation with Monica Gordon about his life and experiences during and after the Holocaust.
