gerda weissmann klein

Kat, Julie and I went to the Holocaust Museum this weekend while Kat and I were visiting. We watched this clip at the end of the tour about how Gerda Weissmann Klein met her husband Kurt Klein, an American soldier, on liberation day. This museum was both incredibly overwhelming and moving, something everyone should go visit at least once.

[I got this video from Katherine's blog, thanks Kat!]


  1. I just read her memoir with one of my students in the Spring! Right after reading Anne Frank's diary. Wow, what a story, huh?

  2. I haven't read her memoir, but I can imagine it would be pretty amazing stuff. You've been to the Holocaust museum in DC, haven't you?
