Abstract: Dee Simon, the Baral family executive director of the Holocaust Center for Humanity, said some survivors build walls around their past; remembering and speaking about it is too hard. “It’s the people who speak out who are truly heroes,” she said of survivors like Henry Friedman. “Every time they spoke, it was painful for them.”
