When Ben Lesser was 10, his life changed forever. On this episode of “The Kate Show,” Kate Dalley interviewed the almost-90-year-old Holocaust survivor to capture his story.

Lesser is now one of the few remaining Holocaust survivors. He came from a happy family of seven, but after World War II, only he and his sister Lola were left.

“Most people living, we can’t imagine what that would be like,” Kate said. “I certainly want to learn from you.”

A survivor of four Holocaust camps, Lesser went through “five years of a living hell,” as he described to Kate.

“From the age of 10 1/2, in the city of Krakow, where the Nazis marched, I’ll never forget that. But from that point on my life has turned around, and it became worse day after day.”

Lesser wrote a book about his devastating experiences in Holocaust camps as well as his journey to a new life called Living a Life That Matters: From Nazi Nightmare to American Dream.
