2021 First Person Series: Irene Fogel Weiss
|Date||Wed, Jul 7, 12:00pm - 1:00pm|
Irene Fogel Weiss was only 13 when Nazi collaborators shaved her head soon after she entered an overcrowded Hungarian ghetto. Her mother gave her a scarf to wear around her bald head, making her look older and potentially saving her life when Irene was later sent to a killing center.
Learn about Irene’s experiences as a teen in Hungary and what happened to her large family when faced with selection and separation at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The First Person series is a monthly hour-long discussion with a Holocaust survivor and is made possible through generous support from the Louis Franklin Smith Foundation, with additional funding from the Arlene and Daniel Fisher Foundation.
