Helen Weingarten: Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

Helen Weingarten (Romania)

Helen was one of seven children. She entered Auschwitz as one of five sisters, but only four survived. Helen narrowly escaped death when the 500 women she was with were redirected from the entrance to the gas chambers and sent to Germany for slave labor.Experience Helen's incredible journey at The Breman's Bearing Witness, January 8, 2017.

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
