A dozen Purdue University Jewish faculty members--ten men and two women--who were forced to flee their homes in Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Hungary during the Holocaust, tell their stories in a series of interviews conducted by Wm. Laird Kleine-Ahlbrandt, a history professor at Purdue and the author of "The Burden of Victory: France, Britain and the Enforcement of the Versailles Peace, 1919-1925" (1995). Some of the refugees were unable to escape and survived through hiding and subterfuge or endured the camps. The interviewees, some speaking out for the first time after more than half a century, often found it difficult to recall painful experiences. They discussed the problems of growing up Jewish, especially after the enactment of anti-Jewish legislation; the importance of religion, God, and traditions in their lives; and adjusting to life in the United States, where finding employment was just one of many obstacles.
