Strobin and her brother Wacs fled from Nazi Austria to the Shanghai Jewish Ghetto.

Today, Strobin is a well-known San Francisco philanthropist, and Wacs is a highly successful fashion designer and prominent artist. Join these two as they tell their remarkable story and put a spotlight on a piece of Holocaust history that's not widely known.
