They Survived Together, airing Monday, May 9, 2022 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV, is the true story of one family's vow to escape certain death in Nazi occupied Krak√≥w together. The Neiger family lived a peaceful life in Krakow's Jewish community when the arrival of World War II changed their lives forever. When Nazi soldiers forced the family from their home into the harsh life of the Ghetto, they hatched a plan to escape as a family. But when circumstances forced them to separate from older brother Ben, their will to survive was put to the test. 

Siblings Cesia, Ben, Hanka, Basia, and Tosia share first-hand accounts of their family’s journey to freedom and a new life in America, one of the only families to escape and survive as an intact family.
