Voice/Vision Holocaust Survivor Oral History Archive

Erna Blitzer Gorman - April 26, 1984


Let me just ask you a couple things. Um, do you remember when the movie Holocaust was on?

Oh I remember.

You didn't watch it?


Did your children watch it?

No. Not, for the reason is because their, their, their school was so involved at the time that they just didn't. One is in medical school and the other one is uh, going to go to law school.

Two boys you have?

Mm-hm. Everybody will know who I am. I know, it doesn't matter. Um, they didn't... I've never watched a film, I've never watched, read a book that had anything to do with this. I just closed my mind to it completely. And maybe that's why it was so difficult for me. I just, just like I was a dif... two people. That's the best I can. And then, a doctor's sort of um, surprised that I never. I didn't.

Is there anything you want to add to it?

I don't know what else you need.

Just anything you, you feel would be something to conclude it.

To conclude it. Oh, I don't know. I think if it hap... I don't even have any clear thoughts on it. I just know I have to do it in case... It has to be recorded. That's all it is.

Okay, thank you.
