This is a lecture given by Alicia Appleman-Jurman in May 1992 at Snow College in Ephraim, Utah as part of its Tanner Lecture Series. Alicia Appleman-Jurman is the author of the book Alicia: My Story, which she wrote over a three-year period while living in Holland. Although Appleman-Jurman spent her childhood in the mountains of Poland, she and her family had moved to Buczacz by the time World War II began. Appleman-Jurman is the only survivor from her immediate family of seven people; her mother was shot in front of her. Despite escaping from custody several times and having several "near misses" when she hid during raids in the ghetto, Alicia witnessed numerous atrocities by Nazi authorities against Jews. Appleman-Jurman contracted tuberculosis, from which she did not fully recover until her stay at a Belgian orphanage after the War. It was from there that she boarded the ship Theodor Herzl, bound for the Jewish homeland of Eretz Israel. And although the voyage ended with the internment in a prison camp on the island of Cyprus by the British of everyone, Appleman-Jurman did finally arrive in Palestine eight months thereafter. A question and answer session with the audience follows.
Lecture given May 22, 1992.
