14th Annual Adath Israel Sacks-Wilner Holocaust Education Program
March 7 @ 12:30 pm
Join the Adath Israel Congressional for their 14th Annual Adath Israel Sacks-Wilner Holocaust Education Program on March 7 at 12:30pm via zoom.
“Invisible Years” – Two years ago we heard the story of Hetty Komjathy, of blessed memory, whose parents hid two Jewish families in the organ loft of their Rotterdam church. Now join us for the rest of the story from two descendants of the hidden. Cousins Daphne Geismar and Sharon Strauss, one in Connecticut and the other in Israel, both discovered “Holocaust drawers” filled with letters, pictures and memoirs which Geismar turned into the book Invisible Years: A Family’s Collected Account of Separation and Survival during the Holocaust in the Netherlands. In this presentation, you will hear about the breathtaking stories of nine family members from two generations, ingeniously woven together and linked to historical events.To register and receive your Zoom link, please call (609) 896-4977.
