Holocaust Survivor Talk: Peter Daniels

Peter Daniels was born in Berlin, Germany in 1936. He was raised by a single mother, and since Nazi laws forbade non-Jews from working for Jews, his mother was forced to leave him alone at home all day while she worked. Since Peter’s maternal grandmother was born Christian, his mother was protected legally as a “Mischling,” or half-Jew. They were able to stay in Berlin until 1943 when all “Mischlinge” were arrested and deported. Peter and his mother were then sent to Theresienstadt ghetto in Czechoslovakia, where Peter lived in the children’s barracks. He was 7 years old at the time and worked performing petty slave labor with other children. When Theresienstadt was liberated by the Soviets in 1945, Peter was one of approximately 100 children still alive in the ghetto. After liberation, Peter and his mother returned to Berlin but found it in ruins. They were accepted into a displaced persons’ camp in Deggendorf, Germany. In school, Peter faced extreme anti-Semitism from German classmates who blamed him for the war and the destruction it had caused. His mother married another survivor in the DP camp in 1945, and Peter’s half-sister was born the next year. His family left Europe in 1947 and settled in the United States.

Holocaust Survivor Talk: Bob Geminder & Gabriella Karin

Bob Geminder was born in 1935 in Wroclaw, Poland. At the outbreak of war in 1939, the Geminders were forcibly relocated to Eastern Poland, where they settled in the city of Stanislawow. Two years later, Bob's father suffered a fatal heart attack during the German bombardment of the city. Throughout the rest of the war, Bob and his brother were hidden with the efforts of their mother and future stepfather. They were liberated by Soviet troops at the end of the war, and immigrated to the United States in 1947. Bob eventually worked as an engineer and a teacher. He currently serves on the Museum's Board of Directors.

Gabriella Karin grew up in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia. When the Nazis occupied Czechoslovakia, Gabriella was sent to hide in a Catholic convent with false papers for three years. She then rejoined her family and spent nine months hiding with them in an apartment in Bratislava. After the war Gabriella had a long career in the fashion industry as a designer and production pattern maker. After her retirement, she became an accomplished sculptor.
