A Holocaust Child’s Story – C-U Community Kristallnacht Commemoration

To commemorate Kristallnacht, longtime Champaign-Urbana community member Bill Gingold (Dr G) will share how he and his family survived the Holocaust. Bill was born on September 20, 1939 in Warsaw, Poland. He survived growing up in the Wasraw Ghetto, escaping into Soviet Russia and being deported to Siberia.
