Schindler Jew Laura Hillman signing books at the Bowers Museum.

Their numbers are dwindling and the memories are painful, but many Holocaust survivors will not refuse an invitation to talk about their experiences, seeing it as their duty to the 6,000,000 who didn't make it. On Holocaust Remembrance Day, Laura Hillman, saved by luck and by Oskar Schindler, told her story at the Bowers Museum.

Above, we've posted an excerpt from her speech, and the entire half-hour address.
