Listening to Kentucky’s Holocaust Survivors
This chapter details an event which occurred in May 2005. Hundreds of people were gathered to hear six Holocaust survivors speak. These speakers had come from different states—Louisville, Lexington, Winchester, Paris, and Prestonburg—for the opening of the exhibit “This is Home Now.” Robert Holczer, Ann Klein, Alexander Rosenberg, John Rosenberg, and Oscar Haber were five of the six Holocaust survivors who gave their speeches that night. The chapter also explores the misinformation and outright denial of the Holocaust in the face of Holocaust education in Kentucky. It examines the burdens and benefits of speaking out felt by the six survivors, and also details their life experiences, how they exercised their faith, and how they struggled to make a place where little was familiar home.
