Bearing Witness Event
Oct 21, 2018 – Helen Weingarten (Romania)

Helen was one of seven children. She entered Auschwitz as one of five sisters, but only four survived. Helen narrowly escaped death when the 500 women she was with were redirected from the entrance to the gas chambers and sent to Germany for slave labor. Doors to the auditorium will open at 1:15 p.m. Speaker will begin at 2:00 p.m.. Free admission to the 2018 Bearing Witness Series is provided through a generous gift from The Sara Giles Moore Foundation.

This event is presented by the Weinberg Center for Holocaust Education at The Breman Museum.
