Preger, George

  • George Preger is a Holocaust survivor, and a Crestwood grandparent. He was born in 1936, in Vienna, Austria, an only child. George moved from city to city during the war but primarily lived in bunkers in Budapest to avoid being captured in the war. Remarkably he and his family were able to stay one step ahead of the Nazis; George learned a false identity and even evaded the SS close up.  He is 80 years old now, and he currently lives in Toronto, Ontario.  This interview happened in December of 2016, at Crestwood Preparatory College, where George was interviewed by Aaron Little, Tristan Agensky, Rylie Tishler, and Yurina Kobayashi, and by his grandsons Levi and Reuben.
