“My Poppy was born in Pultusk, Poland in 1922. He survived Nazi ghettos, forced labor camps and 2+ years in Auschwitz. He turns 99 in March. His wits and positive outlook have never faded… and neither has that number on his left arm marking him as Prisoner 143499.” – Dana Arschin

Holocaust survivor Nat Ross (né Nusen Rosenberg) survived unimaginable horrors during the Shoah, including Block 10 at the dreaded Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. His parents and five of his eight siblings were not as fortunate. They were all murdered. Tomorrow, as we mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 76th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, we must continue to honor the legacy of the victims and the survivors by sharing their stories with the world.
