BEARING WITNESS FOR MY FAMILY: SURVIVING THE HOLOCAUST

Thursday, December 9th
7pm

Jerry Zaks is a 2nd generation survivor. His presentation shows that survival is dependent on your own strength as well as the actions of good people, resistors to the violence and murder. What began as a 2 hour interview with his parents in 1980 became a quest of researching and documenting the history of his parents’ experiences.  Their story began in 1937 when his parents were 17 and 18 years old during WWII, surviving death marches and multiple concentration camps, eventually rebuilding their lives in America.

The Zoom link will be sent the day before.

Max came to us from Liberty Humane Society because he needed a home, but we really needed him. He has a cute personality, sleeps a lot, and is a good cuddler. He loves to go on little walks even though he gets tired very fast.
