Eva Schloss is a survivor of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, and stepdaughter of Otto Frank, father of diarist Anne Frank. Her family was captured by the Nazis in May 1944, and transported to Auschwitz; only she and her mother survived. She has since dedicated her life to ensuring that the Holocaust is remembered and never repeated. In pursuit of this, she co-founded the Anne Frank Trust, which seeks to rid society of discrimination and prejudice. Her experiences also inspired James Still’s play “And Then They Came For Me - Remembering the World of Anne Frank”. More recently, she participated in the USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive project, creating interactive holograms to preserve the memories of Holocaust survivors for future generations.
