A Holocaust Story and the Mothers of Maria

Harold Geller

The speaker will recount a holocaust story as told to him by the late Dr. Maria Dworzecka. It is a story of a little girl separated from her parents by the Nazis. Alone on the curb of a square in Poland, Maria was taken in by a woman who was witness to the parental separation. The speaker will recount what was told about her experiences during the war as a Jewish child in hiding, adopted by a Christian family and raised as their own during Nazi occupation. The town was eventually liberated by the Russians. Maria found her way to the USA after completing doctoral studies in physics.
