Through poetry and testimony, Sonia Schreiber Weitz gives life to the millions of children, men and women who were murdered during the Holocaust. Sonia was 11 years old when her family and other Polish Jews were herded into ghettos and forced to live in treacherous conditions that often led to death.

Today she teaches and lectures to adults and children about the Holocaust.
