Holocaust survivor and literary translator Dora Zaidenweber shares her story

Dora Zaidenweber is a survivor. She and her family survived a Nazi death camp in Auschwitz during World War II. Decades later she set to work on translating her father Isaia's memoir from Yiddish to English, to share the story of her family’s experiences. Aided by her daughter and grandsons, Dora triumphed over obstacles like the language barrier, missing pages of the manuscript, and her failing eyesight to finally complete the memoir, "Sky Tinged Red." In this audio documentary, KFAI producer Susan Budig talks to Dora about her incredible life. Now in her 80s, Dora continues to speak publicly about her experiences.
