Holocaust memorial: Survivor stories

Associated Press
In this photo taken on Sunday, May 5, 2013, Holocaust survivor Rivka Fringeru, 82, left, holds hand with Cynthia Wroclawski, director of Yad Vashem names collection project as they sit in her living room in Rehovot, central Israel. With a hand on her chest and moistness building in her eyes, 82-year-old Rivka Fringeru battled back tears as she reeled off a list of names she has rarely voiced in the past 70 years. First her father, Moshe, then her mother, Hava, and finally her two older brothers, Michael and Yisrael. All perished in the Holocaust after the Harabju family from Dorohoi, Romania was rounded up in 1944 and sent to ghettos and camps. Only Rivka and her brother Marco survived, and like so many others they spent the rest of their lives trying to move on and forget. Now, Yad Vashem, Israel's national Holocaust memorial and museum, is asking them to remember. (AP Photo/Ariel Schalit)
