Nazi Soldiers Discovering Jews Hiding in a Cellar

Sam Horowitz was born in Lopatyn, Poland, today Ukraine. When the Nazis came, he was among the many Jews herded into ghettos. About to be deported to a concentration camp, the family managed to escape. In the dead of night, they trekked back to their village where a Ukrainian farmer took them in. They remained in hiding until the end of the war. After several years in Vienna and Munich, Horowitz immigrated to the US.

Horowitz will share the story of his incredible escape. He will be introduced by UCSD history professor Deborah Hertz, a specialist in modern Jewish and German history.
