On this International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we revisit the 2014 conversations between Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson and Holocaust survivors Margie Oppenheimer and Edith Stern.

Oppenheimer and Stern now both live in The Selfhelp Home in Chicago, a place where survivors who came to the U.S. have lived since the end of World War II.
