Location YouTube
Date Wed, Aug 4, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Duration   1h

Rachel (Rae) Goldfarb was 10 years old when the Nazis occupied her Polish hometown. They forced Jews into a small area designated as a ghetto, which included Rae’s family home. Fearing for their safety after mass killings began, Rae’s mother hid the family behind a double wall between their home and what had been the warehouse of the fabric business they were forced to close.

Learn about Rae’s experiences as a Jewish girl under Nazi occupation and how her mother’s quick thinking helped them escape from two ghettos and later join a group of partisan fighters.
