Kangisser Cohen on Yehuda Bacon 21 Aug 22

Hitler’s intention and regime was the destruction of the Jewish people. Intrinsic to their murderous policy, the Nazis separated Jews from their families and friends. The Nazi ghetto was the “last place” in which the traditional structure of the family was preserved. This lecture will examine the experience of the Jewish family during this period of extreme suffering: separation, expulsion and death of its members. The presentation will focus on survival strategies – planned and unplanned that each member of the family adopted in order to survive. This lecture will be based on the post-war diaries of Holocaust survivor Yehuda Bacon.

“I no longer had my own bed, my cupboard, my books, my family couldn’t take care of me as much, a new life began for me.”
Yehuda Bacon, July 23, 1945
