Hagit Limor is the daughter of Holocaust survivor Menachem “Moniek” Limor, who was only 8 years old when the Nazis invaded his hometown of Czestochowa, Poland in 1939. Through a series of miracles he survived the ghetto, several hideouts, a labor camp, and a cattle car train to Buchenwald Concentration Camp, where ultimately, American soldiers liberated him in 1945. Of 200 extended family members before the war, only five survived. Moniek’s Legacy seeks to empower people to fight bigotry today. Hagit is a ten-time Emmy Award winning freelance journalist after years working for network affiliates. She also serves as a full professor at the University of Cincinnati CCM Electronic Media Division.
