Yom HaShoah—Holocaust Remembrance Day—is observed this year on May 1. To mark this important date, Miriam and Dan sat down with local Holocaust survivor Michael Gruenbaum, who reads a powerful selection from his memoir, “Somewhere There Is Still a Sun,” about his time in the Terezin concentration camp in the Czech Republic.

Gruenbaum answers questions about his life before, during and after the Holocaust. He describes his mother’s incredible love and tenacity in the face of horror, and explains the poignant title of his book. Gruenbaum’s resilience is inspiring—we are grateful to have the opportunity to hear his testimony in his own words.

Find more information at michaelgruenbaum.com, and read more about his experience in “Nesarim: Child Survivors of Terezin,” written by his late wife, Thelma Gruenbaum.
