A LOVE STORY OF A HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR FLEEING NAZI GERMANY AND RETURNING TO LIBERATE EUROPE
Release Date: April 11, 2018

Tomorrow is Yom Hashoah—Holocaust Day of Remembrance to remember of the victims of the Holocaust.  We must never forget the stories of the victims of the Holocaust. And must try harder to avoid repeating the horrors that took place during the years the Nazi’s were in power.

 

In recognition of Yom Hashoah  our cable TV access channels will air 4 interviews with holocaust survivors.  We just produced a fascinating interview with Kurt Rothschild, a resident of Ardsley—a great story of a young boy fleeing from Nazi Germany, and returning to liberate Europe with the US Army.  Kurt lost his mother, father, sister, and many relatives to the Nazi horror. On a good note Hannah & Kurt will be married 70 years this May. A great love story and an enduring one What a positive story. You can watch the interview with Hugh McAuley  on your computer by  clicking on to the following link:

The Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center and the Westchester Jewish Council are proud to present the Annual Westchester Countywide Yom Hashoah Holocaust Commemoration this Thursday, April 12th from 12noon - 1pm at the Garden of Remembrance in White Plains, 148 Martine Avenue.  The  commemoration will again begin with  a procession of Westchester’s rescued Holocaust Torahs.  The event is free and open to the public and is held rain or shine.    The town has been airing Holocaust survivor stories annually on Yom Hashoah.  If you are a survivor or would like to tell a story about a family member who survived the Holocaust please advise and we can include your story in future programs.   My e mail is pfeiner@greenburghny.com.
