Survivor Susi Kaminski Klein: Asleep in the synagogue on ‘Night of Broken Glass’

In memory of Kristallnacht (yes, I know the anniversary was almost a month ago, but it’s taken me a while to recover from the election)…I am honored to share the survival story of my cousin Susi. She’s my grandmother’s niece, whom I did not get to meet until about eight years ago. I’ve heard her story several times since then, but its power still overwhelms me.

Please click the link below from Jewish Journal to read on and you’ll see why.

  1. This is so powerful. And for my, potent. My great grandmother was Jewish and escaped Poland before the war. I was in my forties before anyone acknowledged my pedigree. You are fortunate. I wish I knew more about my family. Thank you for sharing yours.
