Born in New York City in 1955, Marc Huppert is the son of a Polish Jewish Holocaust survivor and an American Jewish woman. Marc’s father, Josef, was born in Zigeunerwald on May 31, 1915. When Germany invaded Poland, he fled to Lvov, which was under Soviet control. Once the Nazis took over Lvov, he survived the war by becoming involved with partisan groups and working for a Soviet general. After the war, he immigrated to the United States with help from his brother, Arthur, and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS). Huppert recorded his oral history interview at Kennesaw State University in August 2022.
