The Shalom Group Sun City presents
My Story: Surviving the Holocaust
Steen Metz (featured on NBC News) grew up in the town of Oabout 100 miles west of Copenhagen, and was the son of non-practicing Jewish parents. Jews made up only 0.2 percent of the country’s population, and were well-integrated into Danish society at the time.
Then, on October 2, 1943, after more than three years of Nazi occupation in Denmark, Metz’s family, 8-year-old Steen and his parents were arrested at their home, loaded into a crowded cattle car without food, water, light or a working toilet for a three day trip to Terezin Concentration Camp in what is today the Czech Republic.
