Osi Sladek is a child survivor of the Holocaust. Born in Czechoslovakia, he survived the Holocaust in the Tatras mountains in the Slovakia/Poland region. Prior to the beginning of WWII, Nazi Germany began it’s expansion and alliances in Europe. In 1939 the Slovaks separated from the Czechs, and formed a new pro-Nazi government adopting Nuremberg type laws called the “Codex Judaicus” to deal with the so-called “Jewish problem of Central Europe” and anti-Jewish laws were imposed upon the Jews of Slovakia. 95,000 Slovakian Jews were sent to the death camps. Of the Six Million Jews lost to the Holocaust, one and a a half million were children.
Mr. Sladek was the only child in his family to survive.
Join us as we hear his story.
