“Peter Stern was born in Nuremberg, Germany in March 1936. His father, Artur, was an auto mechanic and a vocational school instructor. In 1941, his family was deported from Germany to a holding camp in Latvia that was surrounded by frozen water, though no fences, guards patrolled the perimeter. In the spring of 1942 they were transferred to the Riga ghetto and were crammed into a room with other families. In January 1944 the family was once again put on a truck and deported back to Germany where Artur was imprisoned in the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he died. Karolina, Sam, and Peter were transferred to Ravensbruck concentration camp and then, in the face of an Allied advance, moved to Bergen Belsen. They were liberated by the British on April 15th, 1945 and were moved to buildings previously occupied by German soldiers.”

*Due to medical circumstances, the previous speaker, Ms. Nossbaum, is unable to share her story. We wish her a smooth and speedy recovery.
