Featured Survivor Testimony
We are very fortunate to have a substantial video archive of stories by local El Paso residents who were Holocaust Survivors. Here is just one of these touching stories:
This is Bernard Pergricht and in this short video he shares his reflections about the Holocaust. In 1941, his parents and young wife were deported from Poland and sent to concentration camps in Auschwitz where they were killed. He was sent to a labor camp which was liberated by the American army in 1945. Bernard came to the US in 1952, and later to El Paso in 1978. You can read his bio and see more of his video testimonies here.
