The Holocaust Speaker Series, held each Wednesday at 11:00 am, features Holocaust survivors and descendants of survivors sharing stories of life before, during, and after the Holocaust.
20,000+ European Jews survived the Holocaust by escaping to Shanghai, China. Sonia Milrod’s parents were among them. Her father, Jerry Milrod, fled Lodz, Poland, when the German’s invaded and made it to Vilno, Lithuania. From there, he, his brother, and several friends were among over a thousand who made to it Kobe, Japan, based on a transit visa signed by Chiune Sugihara, and then to Shanghai.
Generously sponsored by Margaret and Michael Valentine and presented in partnership with the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center and Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage.
