Duration   1h

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's First Person: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors is a monthly hour-long discussion with a survivor and journalist Bill Benson. The 2021 season will premiere with Peter Feigl, who will discuss his Holocaust experiences and how he survived in hiding without his parents or extended family.

In May 1944, Peter waited for his chance to run to freedom after years spent hiding from the Nazis in France. When the dogs barked, signaling a Nazi guard change at the French border, the Jewish teenager sprinted amid gunfire toward neutral Switzerland. Watch live and ask Peter a question.

You do not need a YouTube account to view this program. After the live broadcast, it will be available to watch on demand on the USHMM's YouTube page.

First Person is made possible through generous support from the Louis Franklin Smith Foundation, with additional funding from the Arlene and Daniel Fisher Foundation.
