Join three Holocaust survivors for an emotional visit to the nightmarish location they only barely survived, the place where they lost so many of the people they loved. WPBT2 will broadcast the special “March of the Living: Return to Auschwitz” on June 17 at noon and June 19 at 7:30 pm.
The special produced by CBS4 features reporter Ted Scouten walking side by side with these individuals to hear their firsthand accounts of life at the Auschwitz death camp, the symbol for the horrors that were propagated within the Nazi’s system of concentration camps.
More than 1.5 million men, women and children were murdered at Auschwitz, either in gas chambers or by being brutally worked to death. With fewer people alive to tell their stories of what transpired, these brave South Florida survivors want to ensure that no one will ever forget the horror and terror that accompanied the Nazi occupation.
Funding for “March of the Living: Return to Auschwitz” was made possible by Zimmerman Advertising.
