Paul Kessler: A story of perseverance

Holocaust survivor Paul Kessler and his mother hid in a pit behind a farmhouse for months until the Russians liberated the region in Slavakia. The farmer who hid them put his own life in considerable danger, providing them with food and keeping them safe until the area was liberated.

 

Today, Paul speaks to school children who visit the Museum and tells his personal story of survival, suffering, and hope. He talks about the civility shown by the farmer who was the perfect example of an Upstander. Support the DHM/CET so more children can learn not only the tragedy of the Holocaust and say, “Never again”.
