Holocaust Survivor Talk: Michele Rodri

Michele Rodri was a young child when Germany invaded her native France. Shortly after the occupation, a German soldier found her playing in the streets of Paris and sent her to the Drancy transit camp. Her brother soon managed to secure her release and took her to a convent, where she concealed her Jewish identity. She was later sent to live with a French family, where she spent the rest of the war.

Holocaust Survivor Talk: Gregory McKay

Gregory McKay was born in hiding from the Nazis, in an attic in Amsterdam, Netherlands, in 1942. Soon after, his father arranged to have his mother and him hidden in a friend’s house. His father, a doctor, created false identity papers for the Dutch underground resistance. In January 1943, the family escaped from Holland, and after a grueling and dangerous ten-day journey by rail, by car and by foot, they reached Switzerland. They lived in the town of Montreux in the Swiss mountains for a number of years, and eventually moved to Los Angeles. Gregory's family's many artifacts and documents, including the bag in which his father carried him on their jouney to Switzerland, are on display at Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust.
