Benny Hochman, Holocaust Survivor

When German troops crossed into Poland in September 1939, Benny Hochman was a young teen living in Lodz with his parents and two siblings. Within a short time of the invasion, Benny and his older brother, a Polish officer, were imprisoned at Auschwitz.  There, Benny lost his brother, younger sister, and parents - all murdered by the Nazis. Young, weak, and angry, Benny was determined to survive.
