Eva Schloss, step-sister of Anne Frank, is appearing on a talk show in Ireland on Friday night to describe surviving the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, the Irish Examiner reported.

Schloss will be a guest on the Late Late Show, which is broadcast on RTÉ One

Born in Vienna, Schloss and her family immigrated to Belgium and eventually to Holland in 1938. After the Germans invaded Holland in 1942, her family went into hiding, but were betrayed two years later. They were captured by the Nazis and sent to Auschwitz on Schloss’ 15th birthday. It was at the concentration camp that her father and brother were killed.

In 1995, she worked with playwright James Still to create the play And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank, about four teenagers during the Holocaust.
