Step by Step: Recreating a Family’s Lost Holocaust History

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Holocaust survivors can have a difficult time talking about what they experienced during World War II. However, this can leave their descendants wondering what happened to their relatives and how it impacted them. This is what happened to Jessica Shaw. She had been told that her father Henri had escaped France as a child by climbing over the Pyrenees Mountains with his mother and younger sister into Spain, where he reunited with his father. The family journeyed through Spain, Portugal, and Cuba before they ended up in the United States. During the COVID-19 lockdown, Shaw made the decision to recreate her father’s journey, which she wrote about in The New York Times. Along the way, Jessica discovered that most of what she knew of her father’s escape from France was wrong.
