Full Summary: Robert tells his story to remember the children of the Holocaust and to teach the children of today.

Born in Budapest, Hungary, Robert remembers a childhood scarred by fear, upheaval, hunger and loss. He was six-years old when forced to wear a yellow star, and face the terrors of war and ghetto life without his parents, both of whom were deported to concentration camps. He grew up under communist dictatorship and escaped Hungary following the bloody uprising of 1956. A graduate of MIT and Drexel University, Robert has gone on to a successful business career. He tells his story to remember the children of the Holocaust and to teach the children of today and the future to choose good over evil and never be a bystander.
