Herbert Barasch will be in conversation with his son Adam about his experiences as a hidden child during the Holocaust. In 1938 after Kristallnacht, Herbert and his parents fled Austria to Belgium. When Herbert was five years old, he and his mother were arrested by the Gestapo and released only minutes before being deported. Soon after, an underground organization helped to arrange for Herbert to be hidden in a Catholic orphanage outside of Brussels. Herbert encouraged Adam and his family to trace his journey to freedom and pass on his story of rescue and survival to future generations.
