94-year old Holocaust survivor shares his memories with Israel’s next generations
Holocaust survivor Zwi Nigal remembers when the two Gestapo secret policemen, wearing trench coats, knocked on his door in Vienna in 1939.
Gently leaning on his wife for balance, Nigal, 94, shared his experiences during World War II with a few dozen people who gathered in an apartment in central Israel on Sunday, the eve of the country’s annual Remembrance Day for the six million Jews killed in the Nazi Holocaust. Sitting on bean bags and a sofa, they listened to the Nigal’s account as part of a nationwide project called Zikaron BaSalon (Memories in the Living Room).
Similar remembrance gatherings were held in 13,000 other homes in Israel, where survivors shared their stories. Their numbers dwindling, some 189,000 elderly survivors live in Israel, making the first-hand testimony all the more poignant.
