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

Theodora (Dora) Klayman was only three years old when she last saw her mother and father. While she was visiting grandparents, her parents were arrested by Nazi collaborators in Croatia. Dora and her baby brother spent the rest of the war hiding with family and neighbors—sometimes cowering in corners as bullets pierced through windows.

Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) and Dora for a live conversation to learn about her Holocaust experiences and how she survived in hiding while many of her family were deported and killed in camps.
