Radio series shares oral histories of Holocaust survivors

Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust (LAMOTH) and KFPK 90.7 FM present a radio series produced by Paula Kessler, “Surviving the Holocaust: Stories of Life.”

The series can be heard on KPFK 90.7 FM Sundays at 9:58 a.m., Mondays at 7:58 a.m., and Wednesdays at 4:58 p.m.

These short oral histories of local Holocaust survivors explore life during and after the Holocaust and focus on moments and memories that are particularly poignant.

“Los Angeles is one of the great Jewish cities of the world and home to hundreds of Holocaust survivors with personal narratives full of life,” Kessler said. “It is important to hear their stories and their voices, now more than ever, when we need to be reminded of our commonalities and mutual hope for our community, city, and world.

“Survivors have so much to say. We are lucky that their voices are so strong, and their memories so clear.”
