Miriam Fishkin: Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

Miriam Fishkin (Poland)

When she was ten, Miriam and her family were forced from their home by the Russian secret police who controlled the region, and sent to Siberia. There, despite the relentless hard work and bitterly cold weather, she survived the war.

"We would like audiences to take away two things from our Bearing Witness programs. First, to take warning that the Holocaust was perpetrated by a country of culture and refinement in the heart of civilized Europe; and second, to marvel at the indomitable spirit of Holocaust survivors who have overcome unprecedented evil with strength, courage and enduring hope.

Liliane K. Baxter, Ph.D.
Director of The Weinberg Center for Holocaust Education
