Irving Roth: Holocaust Survivor

Irving Roth

World War II was a horrific plague on civilization in the 20th century. Over six million Jews, were ruthlessly slaughtered in death camps across Europe. As incivility and hate crimes increase today in the U.S., 90 year old Irving Roth is taking on the hostility one day at a time. Roth, director of the Holocaust Resource Center–Temple Judea of Manhasset, New York, is a survivor of Auschwitz. He joined Karl Lengel for a discussion of his experience and its relevance to the present.

Karl Lengel worked at New Orleans Public Radio for more than two decades before leaving the station in 2023.
