Eta Eckstein, 92-Year-Old Holocaust Survivor, Booted by Brooklyn Landlord


A survivor got kicked off the island — that’s a real survivor we’re talking about: Eta Eckstein, 92, was in a rehab facility when all her belongings from her rent-controlled Bay Ridge apartment were tossed into the street. Lost forever are the Holocaust survivor’s heirlooms, family photos and papers, and so on. This was actuality, not a reality show.

Her grandson, Idan, tells NBC News the sad story. An attorney for landlord Morris Piller insists it was a legal eviction.
