Holocaust deniers are out there but the facts remain, it did happen. 13 million people were killed and tortured by the Nazis because of their faith or background. 6 million of them were Jewish.

My guest today escaped with his parents and siblings but 200 of the rest of his family perished in the extermination camps. He escaped at 11 and at 17 enlisted and served in the U.S. Navy in Okinawa in the WWII Pacific Theater.

He has spent his adult life writing and speaking about the Holocaust in addition to his daytime job. He has written numerous books about the Holocaust and helped found the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.
