About Julie Kohner
Julie Kohner is the daughter of a Holocaust survivor. Her mother, Hanna Kohner, survived four concentration camps including Auschwitz. After Hanna passed away in 1990, Julie she created Voices of the Generations  (a non-profit organization with a mission to bear witness as a second generation​) as a way to preserve and share the memories of Holocaust survivor stories. Since then it has been Julie's passion to tell her mother's unique story of love overcoming evil against the backdrop of World War II Europe.

In 1953, Hanna was the first non-celebrity featured on a national television program, This Is Your Life, and her story of surviving the Holocaust was a first for the early days of television. See More >
