Allan Hall was born in Cracow, Poland.  His story involves fleeing from the German army; living in hiding in Lvov, Warsaw and Cracow; and surviving imprisonment.  On two occasions he faced extermination at the hands of the Nazis and escaped.  The family was liberated in Cracow in February, 1945.  They came to the U.S. in 1947.  Hall holds degrees in building construction, engineering, and law. He has taught at the University of Florida, practiced law, and served as a project consultant in the construction industry. 

Lori Gold is a former school psychologist, divorce mediator, and attorney.  She is a community activist and serves on boards of mental health and educational organizations.  She married Allan Hall, a survivor of the Holocaust, 33 years ago. Lori interviewed their daughters, sons in laws, older grandchildren and Allan's former wife to learn how they were impacted by Allan's experiences during and after WWII. She speaks to groups on the intergenerational impact of the Holocaust and of resilience.
