Economist Ed Herman was born a Jew in Warsaw, Poland in 1931. Against the odds, he managed to survive the Holocaust as a child. Here, he recounts his escape and reflects on what it was like to return to his birthplace.
Reliving the past was very difficult emotionally. He did not think that he could have done it before his 2011 trip to Poland. He is finally able to discuss in a public forum his lost childhood years, and Holocaust experiences, after a silence of over 70 years.

Everyday Life in The Warsaw Ghetto
When he was 2 years old, his parents moved from Warsaw to Katowice. At the end of August 1939 World War II begins, he was only 7 years old . He was told that he would be visiting his grandfather in Warsaw and will be back in a few days. The few days dragged into 72 years, as he did not return to Katowice until August of 2011. His personal journey is a testament of strong faith, growing up in a hurry, resilience and strength in face of adversity, a story of close escapes against all odds to survive. They moved back to Warsaw during the war. Warsaw was subjected to very heavy bombardment. For 30 days, him and his family were there. They ran from shelter to shelter, many buildings collapsed in front of their eyes. In October of 1940, the Warsaw ghetto was established; over 400,000 people were packed into an area of 1.3 square miles.
