2021 First Person Series: Estelle Laughlin
|Date||Wed, Sep 1, 12:00pm - 1:00pm|
Estelle Laughlin was ten years old when Nazi Germany invaded her hometown of Warsaw, Poland. It wasn’t long before more than 400,000 local Jews, including Estelle’s family, were forced into a tiny 1.3-square-mile ghetto in the city. In July 1942, Nazis began deporting the ghetto residents to the Treblinka killing center. Within two months, Estelle was one of the few children left alive.
Learn about Estelle’s experiences as a young Jewish girl under Nazi occupation and her parents’ resourcefulness, bravery, and resolve in trying to shield her from the unimaginable events they were experiencing.
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.
