Renee Birnberg Silberman and Joe Silberman each were born to parents who survived the Holocaust. They joined Steve Cochran and Ji Suk Yi in studio to share stories of what it was like to grow up in a family affected by one of the darkest eras in history. Renee and Joe explain how they met and advocate the importance of teaching the next generation to never forget and always remember.
