Holocaust Survivor Talk: Gerda Seifer

Gerda Seifer was twelve years old when Nazi Germany invaded Poland in 1939. Soon after the war broke out, the Soviet Union invaded her family's city of Przemysl in Eastern Poland. Since her father was a businessman, the Communist regime branded him a danger to the state, which prompted her family to flee to Lwow, where they hid their identities. In June 1941, Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union and Gerda's family spent a few months living in a ghetto. Eventually, her father arranged for her to hide with Polish families, which saved her from deportation to death camps. After the war, a British rabbi arranged for her and other war orphans to come to London, where she trained as a nurse. She moved to the United States in 1951, and raised her family in Long Beach, California.

Holocaust survivor talks last 45 minutes to an hour, and end with a question and answer session with the survivor.

Holocaust Survivor Talk: Betty Hyatt

Betty Hyatt was born in 1934 in Antwerp, Belgium to Dutch parents. In May 1940, Nazi Germany invaded Belgium. Betty's parents fled with their family and intended to go to Surinam, then a Dutch colony, by way of Portugal. As they trekked out of Belgium, Betty's family was caught in Vichy France. Since they were not French citizens, they were not allowed to travel any further. They settled in a small town and soon received aid from the French resistance. Betty lived in France for the rest of the war under a false identity. After liberation, she learned that her father had perished in Auschwitz. Betty, her mother and brother immigrated to the United States in 1946. She settled in Los Angeles where she married, had two sons, and established a career as a social worker.
