An interview with Rose Wagner, a Holocaust survivor, conducted by Dr. Sidney Bolkosky, Professor of History at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. At the outbreak of the war in 1939, Rose and her family lived in Łódź, Poland. After the German occupation, the family found themselves in the Łódź ghetto. By 1942, her parents had perished, leaving her and her sister to fend for themselves in the ghetto. In 1944, she and her sister were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Able to stay together in the camp, the sisters were sent to the Halbstadt concentration camp in Fall, 1944, where they were liberated in May 1945.
