Editor Shlomit Kriger and one of the Holocaust survivors from Toronto featured in Marking Humanity, George Scott, were interviewed on the Liquid Lunch show on ThatChannel.com in Ontario, Canada, on June 2, 2011.
Born in Hungary in 1930, George Scott (originally Spiegel) was a teenager when the Nazis transported him to the Sarvar concentration camp and later to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp in Poland. Although he survived the Holocaust, he lost five of his mother’s six sisters and all of their children and husbands, as well as his grandparents, who had raised him after his father died when he was only a year old. With aid from the Canadian Jewish Congress and other agencies that assisted child survivors, he made his way to Canada in 1948. After meeting Shlomit in 2008, full of zest for life and appreciation for what he had, he inspired her to collect writings from Holocaust survivors and was the first person to contribute pieces for Marking Humanity.
