‘I Had to See That I Didn’t Come From a Black Hole’

Posted on February 28, 2014

My sister Bertl doesn’t call herself a Holocaust survivor, says Starobin, 76, taking her red glasses off. She won’t put them on again until she has finished telling her story almost two hours later. “She says we weren’t in a camp. But you know what? I lost my parents. I lost my home. I was resettled without having a say in it. That seems to me as pretty much being a survivor.”

Esther Starobin is interviewed by Lilly Maier.
