Holocaust Survivors Tell the Stories of Their Childhood

(Sacramento) -- Six million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust. Many of those who survived fled Europe, to rebuild their lives. Some of those survivors settled in California. The those that remain today, were children when Adolph Hitler and the Nazis rose to power in 1933. The California State Assembly, led my Speaker John A. PĂ©rez honored survivors from California in a special Day of Remembrance ceremony at the State Capitol. A few of those honorees tell the stories of their childhoods in this Assembly Access Video.
