Meet Renee Firestone a holocaust survior. Her story, though deeply personal, helps us understand more broadly ways in which race, class, and gender fit together and form social mechanisms by which oppressions are carried out.

“People ask me if I hate the Nazis, I don’t judge because I have no right to judge. I don’t like to use the word hate. It’s too powerful. Hate is what causes people to kill.There’s been enough killing.“

"There are fewer survivors every year, It is important for us to speak. We have a responsibility to remind the world, to warn the world of what has happened. We have to start teaching our children. We can’t be afraid to tell them. Our children have to know what happened.”

“That’s my revenge on the Nazis, They wanted to kill us. I have three great-grandchildren”
