From 1941 to 1945, Germany's Nazi regime murdered two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population. Of the six million Jews who were victims of this genocide known as the Holocaust, an estimated 1.5 million were children. Against all odds, some children managed to survive.
Project producer Laura Markowitz interviewed 19 child survivors of the Holocaust who now live in Southern Arizona. In the coming weeks, AZPM will share these stories in the survivors' own words. This multi-platform, living-history project documents one of the darkest periods in human history — before this generation is gone and their stories are lost to us forever. This is a special look into the making of Children of the Holocaust: Stories of Survival
