Fred Gross of Louisville is a Holocaust survivor. In this video, he shares the history of his family’s experiences. He and his family fled Belgium when he was 3 years old to escape the Nazi invasion in May 1940. After traveling from place to place in France, they found refuge in a school. However, the mayor turned the refugees over to the police, who took them to Camp Gurs, an internment camp that deported Jews to Auschwitz. His brother made a daring escape and arranged for the family’s release. The family hid out until they found a haven in Italy-controlled Nice. That refuge, too, proved to be short-lived. "You had to have an amazing story to tell, because (it was) only through an amazing story that you were able to survive,’’ he says. He tells the story of his family’s struggles and survival, the moral courage of those who helped them, and their eventual emigration to the United States. He describes the lasting effects of his experiences and how he finds purpose sharing his story with young people today.
