Born in 1925 and now a resident of High Point, N.C., Brodt was a prisoner in five Nazi concentration camps and a forced labor camp, including Plashov, Matthausen and Ebensee, during his teenage years. His tale of struggle and his survival against the odds illuminates one of the darkest periods of human history, the Holocaust.
After his liberation, Brodt testified at the trial of Nazi war criminals, including Amon Goeth in Dachau, Germany. After his immigration to the United States, Brodt served in the U.S. Army in Germany and Korea. He has participated in the March of the Living more than 10 times, walking from Auschwitz to Birkenau on Yom Hashoah, and is committed to sharing his story so the horrific crimes of the Holocaust are never forgotten.
