Bearing Witness: Penina Bowman

Unforgettable Stories from the Holocaust

Penina Bowman was 17 years old when soldiers appeared at her family farm in Cluj, Romania and told them they had 20 minutes to pack their bags. Penina survived the extreme hardships of Auschwitz and Gross-Rosen, where she worked as a slave laborer. Despite having lost both parents and countless relatives to the Holocaust, Penina refuses to hate; believing instead that hatred destroys the host more than the target.
