Betty Grebenschikoff is a Holocaust survivor. She speaks about the hardships her family endured as the political climate in Germany changed. Friends turned against her and her family because they were Jewish. Her father paid bribes to get them out of Berlin four months before WWII. Now refugees, they traveled to Shanghai, which had an open-door policy to accept refugees, living in what became known as The Shanghai Ghetto. Betty speaks about the Holocaust and being a refugee followed by a question and answer session, bringing a contemporary insight to the issues the United States and other countries face in today’s worldwide refugee crisis.
