Doris Lazarus is the proud daughter of two Holocaust survivors. Both of her parents survived the ghetto, over 2 years in Auschwitz-Birkenau, the death march and subsequent camps. Together they survived a total of 7 death camps. They met and married in a Displaced Persons camp 1 year after liberation.  Doris has dedicated her life to Holocaust education and remembrance.  She worked for Steven Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation from 1993-1997 and interviewed over 125 Holocaust survivors from the Midwest as part of that project.
