"I want them to know that the Holocaust did exist. I was a part of it."

Introductory Profile: About Tom Kovar

I interviewed Tomas Kovar. He is a Jewish person and was apart of the Holocaust. I asked Tom about his experiences when he was in the Holocaust. I learned where he hid and how dangerous it was to hide a person.

Tom has white hair, and is 76 years old. He wears glasses. He was born in Nitra. The Holocaust started when he was 2 years old. He later moved to Chile. Then he moved to the U.S., where he lives right now. He has a spoiled dog named Smuchi that he lives with, as well as a wife who’s name is Rita. He loves to go to Starbucks with Smuchi as well as volunteering at the the local hospital.

Tom seemed to be a bit impatient wanting to share his story. He called four minutes early waiting to be interviewed. He had stories to tell. At the end, he seemed happy and told me happily that if there was anything else i could just ask.

I want to thank Tom for talking to me.
