Abstract

Oral history interview with Holocaust survivor Manuel Goldberg. Goldberg was born in Paris in 1940 to Polish parents who came to France to escape anti-Semitism. His father was captured by the Nazis in 1941 and sent first to Drancy and then to Auschwitz, where he was killed. Goldberg, his mother, and his two brothers fled to Normandy, where they lived in a village not far from the D-Day beaches. Although there was little food and they had some close encounters with the German soldiers, Goldberg recalls several good things about their time in Normandy. When the war ended, the family went back to Paris until relatives could have them brought to the United States, where they arrived in 1948. In this interview, Goldberg discusses his family, their life in France during and after the war, their voyage to the United States, and adapting to life in America.
