Growing Up in Germany: A Survivor Remembers

Eric Blaustein

Eric BlausteinIn sharing their testimony, Holocaust survivors provide a human dimension to understanding history, enabling us to learn and never forget. Born in Germany, Eric Blaustein started school in 1933, the same year Adolf Hitler became chancellor. At 18, Blaustein was sent to the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he stayed until the Allied liberation in 1945. He went on to work as an engineer, get married and raise a family in the U.S. At Elmhurst University, Blaustein will reflect on his youth in Nazi Germany, surviving Buchenwald, and what it has meant for his life ever since.
