Bearing Witness: Ben Walker (Romania)

Bearing Witness

Ben Walker will be speaking as part of The Breman Museum's oral history event series titled Bearing Witness: Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust.

Ben was six years old when he and his family were ordered to report to the railroad station within four hours. He and his mother survived the Holocaust in conditions beyond description in Transnistria, in southern Ukraine. Following the war, he and his mother immigrated to Israel where he served in the Israeli army. Mr. Walker later moved to the United States, where he attended the University of Florida and Syracuse University before moving to Atlanta.
