Stories Survive: Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage

As a small child, Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff fled her Nazi-occupied hometown of Kosice, Slovakia (then Czechoslovakia) along with her parents and infant brother. They remained on the run and in open hiding for seven months—during which they had several narrow escapes, including an arrest in Spain—until they reached Lisbon, Portugal, where they joined tens of thousands of Jewish refugees awaiting ships to the United States. With the assistance of HIAS, Dr. Klein Kassenoff and her parents were rescued from Portugal in 1941, boarding one of the last ships to safety.


Dr. Klein Kassenoff became the founding director of the University of Miami Holocaust Teacher Institute. She is also the Education Chairperson at the Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach, Florida, and the Education Specialist for Holocaust Studies for Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
