Kitty Loewy is a member of the Second Generation. Her father, Karl Loewy, fled Austria in 1938 to Switzerland, where he spent time in a labor camp. Karl kept a diary during this period, chronicling his experiences in the camp. From Switzerland, Karl was one of the small numbers of European Jews who accepted the offer of refuge made by the Dominican Republic. He lived in the Jewish refugee community of Sosua, in the Dominican Republic, before moving to Chicago in 1948. Kitty is a member of the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Speakers’ Bureau and shares her father’s story beautifully
