Betty Grebenshikoff was just nine years old when she escaped Hitler’s Germany. Dozens in her family would be killed in Nazi death camps. And for more than eight decades, she thought her best friend suffered the same fate.
In this extended content from The New Reality, Betty talks about escaping Hitler’s Germany, surviving Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass), and settling in Shanghai. Betty and her daughter, Jennifer, also reminisce about the reunion between Betty and her best friend 82 years after they were separated.
Elizabeth Gelman from The Florida Holocaust Museum describes the incredible coincidences that had to happen for Betty and Ana María to be reunited, and what makes the whole story universally emotional.
