Dana Arschin: From 2 Emmy Awards at Fox to Storytelling for Holocaust Survivors and Honoring Poppy
Host Vincent A. Lanci connected with Dana Arschin through cold networking in his pursuit to complete his exclusive interview with Fox News in 2019. Fast Forward to 2023: He has the honor of sharing her story.

​Dana Arschin is a 2X Emmy Award-Winning journalist and the first-ever Storyteller for the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center (HMTC) of Nassau County. Her grandfather ("Poppy") survived more than two years of forced labor in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp.

Prior to her role with the museum, she spent six years working as an on-air general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor for Fox 5 News, covering the New York/Tri-state area. In 2018, Dana traveled to Poland to learn more about her ancestors murdered in the Holocaust. She shot, wrote and produced three short films on her journey for Fox 5. Dana won her second NY Emmy award for one of those films, entitled The Forgotten Camps. She previously reported for News 12 The Bronx/Brooklyn, where she shot, wrote and edited all of her stories.

During her tenure at News 12, Dana won her first NY Emmy Award for her reporting on the city's cleanup efforts in Brooklyn during the 2014 snowstorms. She also won first place two years in a row at the NY Press Club Awards for her reporting in Brooklyn.
