The holocaust was, without a doubt, one of the darkest chapters in our history as a species, and certainly the darkest of the 20th century. One man’s megalomania coupled with the aberrant hatred of a large portion of the population of Germany, and Europe as a whole, led to the wholesale, systematic and industrialized slaughter of an entire people. Six million Jews and 5 million non-Jews perished in the most abominable way in the Holocaust. The callous disregard for the suffering of the Jews (and non-Jews) shown by the Nazis, some Germans and other sympathizers is a defining facet of European society of the era. How could we let this happen? Thankfully, there were survivors, but besides the ones who at one point made headlines, little is known about the rest. We cannot include all of the survivors, but here are 20 famed holocaust survivors.
