Murray Lynn (Hungary): Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

Murray Lynn (Hungary)

Parental guidance is recommended. Some content presented in this program is not appropriate for children under the age of 13.

Murray Lynn was only 14 years old when he, his mother and three brothers were sent by cattle train to Auschwitz-Birkenau. His mother and brothers were murdered upon their arrival, but Murray survived despite unbearable conditions, and a death march that lasted many weeks. As an orphaned teenager, he was sent to England, Ireland and ultimately America, where he began a new life.

"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
