In this April 1994 video, recorded at Glendale Community College, speakers Ella & Harry Adler reflect upon their experiences with the Holocaust. Ella, born in Krakow Poland, was one of the Jewish people sent to the concentration camps by the Nazis. While the majority of her family had been killed in these same concentration camps, she had survived several concentration camps including Plashov and Auschwitz. Harry also had a number of family members who were killed in the Holocaust and encountered the Buchenwald concentration camp as an American Soldier during the war. The two married after the war, and were very active in the Phoenix Holocaust Survivor's Association, more of which can be found out about the organization and the couple here: http://www.phoenixhsa.org/

The acclaimed bestselling classic of Holocaust literature, winner of the Booker Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Award for Fiction, and the inspiration for the classic film--"a masterful account of the growth of the human soul" (Los Angeles Times Book Review). A stunning novel based on the true story of how German war profiteer and factory director Oskar Schindler came to save more Jews from the gas chambers than any other single person during World War II. In this milestone of Holocaust literature, Thomas Keneally, author of Daughter of Mars, uses the actual testimony of the Schindlerjuden--Schindler's Jews--to brilliantly portray the courage and cunning of a good man in the midst of unspeakable evil.
