Description

This panel first provided historical background to the Holocaust, situating the discussion in the broader context of migration (i.e., the notion of forced population transfers leading to the Holocaust and the resulting refugee/displaced persons crisis for survivors). After examining the notion of migration within the context of the Holocaust, the four authors and Holocaust survivors--whose lives were upturned and who were uprooted as a result of the Holocaust--discussed their individual stories of survival and migration from Europe to Los Angeles. While the survivors will focus on the paths they followed as they moved ever westward, settling and raising families in Los Angeles, they will also comment on the crisis of the event that lead to so many millions of murdered and displaced persons.
