Anne Levy

Anne and her immediate family survived two years in the Warsaw Ghetto and then lived among non-Jewish Poles for the remainder of the war, passing as Christians. The tiny, olive-skinned Anne had to remain hidden, lest the Skoreckis expose themselves as Jews and risk their lives as well as the lives of those who helped them. Anne Skorecki Levy did not often speak of her experiences as a child survivor, but received extra encouragement to do so during the 1989 campaign of Holocaust denier and former Klansman David Duke. Anne personally confronted Duke repeatedly during this time, bearing witness to the Holocaust and standing up to ongoing hatred and prejudice.
