9:14 am
now because if you don't leave now you will be deported and you should leave now and he told us earlier in the year so out of desperation we booked passage to shanghai being the only place in the entire world there was no immigration requirement of any kind all you had to do was book passage so we booked passage on the ship, and we left a week before the war started, literally the last ship out of europe, to go to shanghai. >> unbelievable we are looking at pictures of your family, on the ship, on your way you are just a little girl here how old were both of you. >> i was 3. >> just 3 years old do you remember any of that? >> well, i remember mostly my parents trying to protect me and so they painted this picture of going on this boutful boat, and -- beautiful boat and we are just going to go to fairy land some place >> as you sit here i must get
9:15 am
this out of the way the horrors that would ensue in europe you sit here today, survivors, when you think of that, before i go any further do you think of it, so huge what do you think of? >> well, you think of basically how lucky we were and really, it was all a question of luck, even to survive was luck, lucky circumstances that made us leave and that was what i think mostly, how lucky we were, because the rest of our family did not leave and they did not survive, because they were not forced to leave we were, circumstances and they didn't survive >> they did not survive. so when you go to shanghai this is no paradise, as we said, this is classified as a jewish ghetto, what is life like for you? i imagine it is very different from the life you knew in austria.
9:16 am
>> yes. >> very different. >> completely different i remember we were living in one room all four of us, and i remember my brother was put on a cot and i was on a bed, being called a bed and my mother cooked and my father sewed everything was in one room privacy did not exist and we lived like that for 10 years. >> 10 years. >> we didn't know anything else. >> the book, because i don't want to get too far away from this book and you will have book signings today and tomorrow at the holocaust museum it is told from two perspectives you are a younger child during this time, you know you would grow older and you, sir, were an older boy, a teenager so what was that like from your perspective? >> well, i was 12 when we got to shanghai and you know, being young, everything is more like an adventure, actually generati but needless to say, our main concern in shanghai was eating, we were always hungry, and what
9:17 am
you could think of, in retrospect, japanese did not kill us. >> because china at that point was occupied. >> by the japanese. >> so it is amazing that you were even -- china was so open, that is a whole other story. >> right. >> we will leave that to the historians i want to hear your story so then i got to fast forward because time is so fleeting so you are at the holocaust museum as adults eventually you would come to the states what do you see there. >> well, the first thing i saw my brother pointed it out to me i went there reluctantly i didn't want to relive my past if i didn't have to low and behold there was a photograph of me, sitting with two children but i didn't know that was me at first and i was looking at it and all i could really see was three sad children, one in particular, i had a feeling looked right at me it was me in the eyes you could tell they were sad and
9:18 am
they were told to smile nor japanese basically a propaganda shot taken. >> are we looking at that? >> right now. >> i am the one at the other end. >> okay. look at that. >> yeah. >> how did you end up in that? >> well, my parents -- took a long time my father was romanian, we ultimately got here through canada we lived in canada two years and were able to come to united states. >> let me ask you another huge question survivors now, are as we all are getting older, the average age, mid-60s or so, is there any fear on your behalf, that this history, will be forgotten without the personal testimony of those who survived the holocaust? >> yes, the testimony has to be given, has to be remembered each generation does have to remember it, it is very important, it is remembered as
9:19 am
a lesson that should not happen gain. >> yes. >> with other people other cultures it is very important, it is not forgotten. >> we are so glad you have chosen to tell your story it was after that visit to the holocaust museum i am told. >> absolutely. >> so again the signing of the book an uncommon journey will be today and tomorrow at the museum shop, 1 to 4 there is the information on your screen, this is debra and eli, very successful i am looking to one day purchase some of your designs sir and one day be invited to one of your fabulous parties i am sure in san francisco. >> open invitation. >> thank you for stopping by. >> thank you for having us. >> fascinating story. >> coming up, a look at red skins new uniforms. >> plus last night's wounded warrior amputee softball game first good morning holly. >> good morning we are learning a lot this is a scale model of

9:47 am
>> hello. >> thank for coming out. >> at what age were you told, the story you had a relative on the ill fated ship. >> it is interesting, when i think back to my childhood it was always something we were aware of at a very early age but don't specifically remember being sat down and told we had a portrait of our great great grandfather in the house in a prominent place so it was you know from a very early age, 3, 4, 4 or 5 i always remember being aware of the connection and you know it didn't come up that often because you know my parents and grandparents were fairly stoic bunch it wasn't like it was a common dinner table conversation. >> just something you knew. >> something i knew. >> and heard about. >> tell us the story >> my great great grandparents were passen injuries on the titanics maiden voyage they had been traveling in europe celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary so travelling alone they were older had already had kids which is why i am here
9:48 am
today, but, so, they had -- this was their return voyage to america, and they were in their state room sleeping when the ship struck the iceberg according to the account that my great great grandmother had given to the media a couple weeks after the sinking and you know, they like -- well, she had sent my grandfather out to the deck to see what was going on what was the matter, obviously they heard the noise and he came back down and reported what others told him the ship struck an iceberg and across the hall they heard stewards coming through the cabins and asking the passengers to go up to the deck so they went up to the deck and by all accounts, everything seemed to be orderly, there was no sense of panic, but, i think you know, seemed like my great great grand father was aware this was a pretty serious situation so he very quickly tried to get my great great grandmother into a lifeboat did that, stepped back and helped
9:49 am
other passengers on they started lowering the lifeboat, she assumed he had gotten on because she couldn't see in all the commotion. >> but they were separated at that motion. >> once the boat was on the water she called out and there was no response from him, so he went down with the ship. >> it is such a heavy story, and so you are standing here amidst can exhibit having this personal connection,. >> i was down here, looking at the exhibit for the first time last week, and you know, the first part of it is kind of interesting and very visually appealing and factual the model is a piece of itself, you talked about the statistics i have to admit it was e motional
9:50 am
it was, a little tough and you know, for body who works here, i have this connection i am on a titanic over load even when there isn't an anniversary to celebrate but it comes down here you thing you can't have another moment like that and you do, at the end of the day i understand, the great fascination people have with the sinking itself, with you know the juxtaposition of the brawn of titanic and the sinking on its maiden voyage at the end of the day, it is a story of great tragedy and human loss my sense of it from what i know of my ancestors and accounts passed down it was a very traumatic event for the family and certainly for my great great grandmother anna. >> you can tell in talking to you it still is for you even however many generations later. bob hall lard said every generation rediscovered the -- ballard, said every generation
