Witness to the Holocaust: Learning from a Survivor

Ralph Franklin was born in 1928 in Schlochau, Germany. During Kristallnacht, November 9-10, 1938, Ralph's teacher told him to return home because he was prohibited from attending a public school. When he arrived home the Gestapo was arresting his father and uncle. They were sent to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
This educational program has been supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
