Bernard Marks was a child living in Poland when Nazi Germany invaded at the start of World War II. Over the next several years he saw, endured and survived immense cruelty, including internment in the Auschwitz and Dachau concentration camps. After his liberation at the end of the war, he came to the United States. Now in his 80s, he often speaks to students (including in Davis) about his experiences, and today we hear his story (which continues in part 2). This is powerful.
