Racheli Kreisberg-Greenblatt. My Grandfather Simon Wiesenthal: A Family Story to be Told

They realised all too soon that all 89 of their relatives had been murdered. This is the notion we grew up with: “we have no family”. Over the years, I made multiple attempts to ask my grandparents about their family, but my notes remained almost empty.
This lecture focuses on the discovery of Simon Wiesenthal’s ancestors and their families. This is a search which in turn led to the establishment of a huge and robust family tree now shared with the public in various databases and a story to tell to all those who are interested in the man who dedicated his life to bringing Nazi criminals and their collaborators to justice.
