Story of DP camp children’s reunions covered on Today

As part of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Jan. 27, Today’s Al Roker presented a segment with Holocaust survivors Ira Segalewitz, Ruth Brandspiegel, and Israel Eisenberg — who lived in the same DP camp in Hallein, Austria after World War II.

Observer readers first read about their remarkable reunion in the December issue. Segalewitz is a resident of Dayton. Brandspiegel lives in Philadelphia, and Eisenberg in New Jersey.

The celebration of their reunion continues at 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 16 with a Zoom conversation featuring Segalewitz and Brandspiegel presented by Dayton’s Jewish Community Relations Council in partnership with Dayton’s JCC, Temple Beth Or Adult Education Committee, and Philadelphia’s JCRC.
