Hershel Greenblat was born in the Ukraine in 1941. The first two years of Hershel’s life were spent hiding in a cave. The German invasion of the Soviet Union had already begun and Hershel’s parents moved frequently to avoid capture. Life for Hershel and his family changed dramatically when they were transported from Russia to American controlled Austria. They lived in displaced persons camps for five years while waiting for permission to emigrate to the U.S.

This program is presented in cooperation with the Georgia Council for the Social Studies.
