Back to Belsen Part 1


Something different this week. Most of the program is devoted to a woman named Berthe Meijer. Berte is a holocaust survivor. In 1943, in Nazi occupied Holland, she, her sister, mother and father were rounded up by the Nazi’s and sent to Camp Westerbork in the Netherlands and then onto Bergen Belsen in Germany where she would spend the rest of the war. When the Russian Army freed her in 1945, she was just 7 years old. Berte tells her story. It is the story of the horrors of the holocaust, told through the eyes of child. Next week Berte, along with 70 other survivors, return to Belsen for the first time in 61 years, to inaugurate a new Dutch memorial.

Segment 2 - Lithuanian School of Yiddish
The University of Vilnius’s Yiddish Institute was the first Yiddish center of higher learning to be established in post-Holocaust Eastern Europe. It is working to preserve and further the East European Jewish language and culture. Sabina Casagrande went for a visit.
