NM0016 – Holocaust Survivor
– Hello Friends!
Long time no post. Sorry about that. With the holidays and so many other things going on (see the episode for more details), I needed more time to put this one together. Not to mention this is definitely one of the hardest stories (emotionally and logistically) that I’ve put together so far here on New Mexicast.
What started as a simple recording session to document one woman’s life’s story as a favor to her family has turned into a three part (or maybe more… who knows?) series. After all, how does one tell the story of someone’s 85 very colorful years in one podcast episode? I, for one, obviously can’t!
Seriously, I hope this story moves you as much as it has moved me. Seeing the film from the 1930’s really got to me. A special thanks to Inga Huhn and the Koenig family for allowing me to use the footage. Also, thanks so much to Stephen Falk (and several of his family members) for getting me all the documents and materials for this story (Including sending me an audio cassette! Which prompted my 4 year old daughter to ask, “Mommy, what’s a cassette?” LOL!). I also appreciate the Internet Archive for providing the historical footage. And, of course, Gabrielle for inviting me to interview her in the first place.
Oh, and I am happy to share a few announcements this week:
1. New Mexicast – Episode 14 – is being featured on Roots TV! Click here to check it out!
Well, it has been a very crazy time in our lives. I hope 2009 calms down sometime soon!
Please know you are appreciated dear viewer! Look for part 3 in two weeks.
Lots of love,
