Many Roads to Here: Jewish Children Please Stand Up

Join us this Sunday, December 19th at 4pm for the return of Many Roads to Here, a production of The Immigrant Story, capturing the immigrant experience in the U.S. through monthly profiles. Voices from across the globe offer intimate accounts of immigration, war, genocide, and success. Listen live at 99.1 FM in the heart of Portland – or online anywhere at PRP.fm.

We were delayed a week but are excited to return this Sunday at 4pm for Part 2 of Leslie and Eva Aigner’s story of survival during the Holocaust. If you have not heard Part 1, you can listen to the full episode on The Immigrant Story’s website.

We begin this week’s episode with Leslie in Auschwitz, hiding an injury he fears could send him to the gas chamber. Eva and her sister are newly reunited with their mother but find themselves scrounging for food and a sense of security in the Jewish ghetto.

Many Roads to Here is a production of The Immigrant Story. This episode was produced by Degen Larkin and Fran Silverman. Rick March did the audio editing, assisted by Gregg Palmer. Music was composed by Corey Larkin. The original interviews were conducted by Sylvia Franekl, Eric Harper and Lanie Reich. Our executive producer is Sankar Raman.

Many thanks to Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education for collaborating with us on the exhibit To Bear Witness, which is open right now and features the stories of genocide survivors, and for providing us with the original 1994 audio interviews with Leslie and Eva.
