Impact in Profile
Meet Melissa Kravetz
Though Olga and Paula connected through testimony over a year ago, local media recently reported on their unique friendship and introduced them to the world.
Hansi Keating remembers seeing young boys sent to see the camp doctor who would sterilize them as part of their experimentation. She also talks about how she and few girls from the barrack made escape plans, which ultimately failed. This is the 41st testimony clip in the series 70 Days of Testimony: Leading up to the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz.
Melissa Kravetz and Jenna Leventhal first met as undergraduate history majors at UC Santa Barbara over 10 years ago. Now, they are working together to introduce students to testimony through IWitness.
