Holocaust Remembrance Day Lecture with Werner Reich
Werner and his family were residents of Berlin when the Nazis came to power in 1933. His father, an engineer, lost his job soon thereafter, prompting the family to move to Yugoslavia. This move was only a brief reprieve, as Nazi influence soon reached Yugoslavia as well. Werner’s mother placed him in hiding with several families, but he was eventually found by the Gestapo and sent to jail and then into the camp system, where he went from Theresienstadt, to Auschwitz-Birkenau, and finally to Mauthausen, where he was liberated in 1945. After the war, Werner returned briefly to Yugoslavia before moving to England in 1947, where he became a pipefitter. He immigrated to the United States in 1955 and eventually became an engineer.
