Brooklyn Holocaust survivors share stories of survival on remembrance day

The annual event was held at the Brooklyn Flatbush Jewish Center and was organized by "Self Help Community Services," a nonprofit founded in 1936 to help Jews fleeing Nazi Germany maintain their independence as they built new lives in the United States.
Holocaust Remembrance Day begins tonight.
