2021 First Person Series: Esther Starobin
|Date||Wed, Oct 6, 12:00pm - 1:00pm|
Esther Starobin was two years old when her parents sent her out of their German hometown to an uncertain life in England. An organized rescue effort for Jewish children, known as the Kindertransport, took place between 1938 and 1940. Esther spent the next eight years with a foster family, largely unaware what was happening to her parents and brother who had remained in Germany.
Learn about Esther’s experiences as a Jewish girl raised by a Christian foster family in England and how her oldest sister worked to fulfill her promise of keeping the sisters together.
The First Person series is a monthly hour-long discussion with a Holocaust survivor and is made possible through generous support from the Louis Franklin Smith Foundation, with additional funding from the Arlene and Daniel Fisher Foundation.
