Elías Kuperstein Venezuela 2010

He was born in Novoselitsa, Romania, on May 25, 1928. In 1941 he began a difficult journey through four ghettos: his own town, Securen, Mogilev and Popivtsi. At the end of the war, with a sister and his father, he returned to his hometown and then, in 1949, emigrated to Peru, where a brother was already there. He arrived in Venezuela in 1975.

Testimony: "When we began to learn about what had happened during the war, I felt a lot of rage, a lot of indignation, but on the other hand I felt that one was lucky to survive. Although it is true that I was not in concentration camps with gas chambers, I was still humiliated. Where I was there was a different form of extermination: it was an extermination through time, so that the conditions in which we were kept would kill us".
