Video: Eva Schloss: Holocaust Survivor│猶太大屠殺倖存者
Mrs. Eva Schloss is a Holocaust survivor and the stepsister of Anne Frank. In her first visit to Hong Kong, Mrs. Schloss speaks to our Chairman, Mr. Ronnie C. Chan and local students about surviving Holocaust and building a life after it.
Mrs. Schloss is a peace activist, international speaker, teacher, author and humanitarian, recognized by Queen Elizabeth II with an M.B.E. and for whom the play And Then They Came For Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank was written by James Still in 1999. She is also the stepsister of Anne Frank, whose diary possibly is the most famous work to emerge from the horrors of that event. Mrs. Schloss’s story is one of heartbreaking loss, determination, betrayal and, ultimately, the survival and triumph of the human spirit against all odds: among her many ordeals, she survived escape from Austria, two years in hiding in Amsterdam, capture on her 15th birthday, nine months in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, the death of her father and brother, and repatriation to Holland.
40 years after the end of World War II, Mrs. Schloss started to share her story. She has since written three books and spoken all over the world about her experiences.
