Holocaust Testimony - Otto Starr

The Holocaust was the genocide of European Jews during World War II. 

 Between 1941 and 1945, Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews across German-occupied Europe, around two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population. 

Otto Starr shares his family's experience during this time of history.
