Abstract/Description
Holocaust survivors Ruth and Michael Novice discuss their experiences during the Holocaust as part of the Philip N. Backstrom Survivor Lecture Series held during Northeastern University's annual Holocaust Awareness Week. Ruth Novice, originally from Hamburg, Germany, was a young child when the war began and escaped to England with her family. She discusses what things were like for Jews in Germany right after the Nazis came to power. Her husband Michael Novice, originally from Warsaw, Poland, was smuggled out of the Warsaw Ghetto and ended up doing forced labor at an ironworks factory before being shipped to Auschwitz. He survived the death march from Auschwitz and was later in Buchenwald and Theresienstadt before being liberated.
