A Jewish Boy Survives in Hiding: Blocks from Anne Frank's Annex

Location Facebook Live
Date Mon, Jun 12, 12:30pm - 1:00pm
Duration   30m

Leo Ullman survived the Holocaust in hiding with strangers as a toddler—in Amsterdam, the same city where Anne Frank hid and was later discovered. His parents were told nothing about his caretakers or his location in order to help keep him safe.

Only after the war did Leo realize that the loving couple who had raised him for years were not his biological parents. He later learned just how many of the Dutch families nearby knew about the young Jewish boy in hiding and chose to protect him. Watch the story of Leo Ullman on June 12, Anne Frank’s birthday.
