Digital Speaker Series: Cheryl Hecht
Wednesday, September 16, 2020 | 11:00 am | Zoom
Presented by the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center

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. Join us on Wednesday, September 16 at 11:00 am via Zoom to hear Cheryl Hecht share her father's story of survival.

Cheryl Hecht tells the story of her father, David Hochstein, a Holocaust survivor from Cologne, Germany. Rescued by a Kindertransport, he was taken to London when he was 15. The Kindertransport movement was unique in that people of many religions came together to rescue 10,000 mostly Jewish children, bringing them to Great Britain. David’s story is one example of a teenager’s resilience, perseverance, and strength, during the Holocaust.
