Location YouTube
Date Wed, Mar 22, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Duration   1h

Joël Nommick never got the chance to meet his father, who was arrested and deported in 1942. Only later would he piece together the story of his father’s imprisonment at Auschwitz and numerous other camps. What happened to his father after liberation remains a mystery, despite Joël’s ongoing research efforts.

Learn how Joël, his mother, and two brothers managed to keep their Jewish identities hidden and stay alive in France while in constant danger of discovery.
