Escaping to Palestine

The Holocaust Living History Workshop presents:

Escaping to Palestine

On September 1, 1939, German tanks rolled up into Poland.  World War II had begun.  At the time, Stephen Victor Kraus was 10 years old and lived in Warsaw.  His family decided to escape.  After an arduous journey through Romania, Turkey, and Yugoslavia they arrived in Palestine and safety.  At this event, Kraus will share his memories of a time of turmoil and survival and how he has come to terms with the past.
