Dr. Edith Eger was only 15 when her family was violently removed from their home in Hungary by German Nazis and sent to concentration camps. But after surviving Auschwitz, and later immigrating to the United States, Dr. Eger kept her past a secret, even from her own children, until decades later. On this emotional episode of She Pivots, Dr. Eger discusses dancing for her survival at Auschwitz, her decision to get her PhD in her 50s, the power of sharing her story, and her advice for future generations.
