Kiss Every Step

The Holocaust Living Workshop presents:

Doris Martin: Kiss Every Step

Doris Martin, born and raised in Bedzin, Poland, was taken to Auschwitz at sixteen and from there to the Ludwigsdorf slave labor camp in Lower Silesia, a sub-camp of Gross-Rosen.  For almost 3 years she struggled against depravation, despair, and the ever-present threat of death.  After the war, Martin was too traumatized to talk about her horrifying experience.  With the help of her husband she finally committed her unique story to paper, the result of which was her book, Kiss Every Step (available at UCSD Libraries).  Martin will be introduced by Professor Deobrah Hertz, who considers her experience from the historian’s perspective.
