AMY GOODMAN: Tell us a little more about yourself, Hedy. Talk about your early years in Germany and how you survived the Holocaust. HEDY EPSTEIN: I was born in Germany, and when Hitler came to power, I was eight years old. And my parents quickly realized that Germany was not a place to raise a family under the Nazi regime…In May 1939, I was fortunate to be able to leave Germany on a Kindertransport to England…My parents were not so fortunate. They perished in 1942 in Auschwitz.
