Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day but it is also a special day for a Hicksville woman who escaped Nazi Germany. Margarete Goldberger was aboard a mass humanitarian operation called Kindertransport, and her memories of fleeing the Nazis were captured on faded family photographs. Goldberger recalls that 23 of her close relatives were killed in the Holocaust. Goldberger, 85, is from Hicksville and was just 12 years old when her homeland of Germany turned into her prison.
