Holocaust Testimonials by Henry Kolber
Henry Kolber (Larry Feinstein's uncle) was 17 years old when the Nazis took over Poland and began deporting Jews to the concentration camps. Because Henry was a carpenter's apprentice, the Nazis put him to work instead of putting him to death. In the late 1980s Henry started sharing his story of what happened in the camps. He testified in Germany at the war crimes trials, and shared information with Elie Weisel and Simon Wiesenthal. His story is worth watching.
