Stories of Survival and Hope: An Evening with Bronia Brandman
You are invited to join The Alumni Community/JEC for a very special event with guest speaker Bronia Brandman.
Ms. Brandman was born into a family of six children in Jaworzno, Poland. She was eight years old when World War II broke out. Her family was split up in 1942 when her brother was sent to a labor camp and her parents were sent to Auschwitz - never to be seen again. Ms. Brandman and her three sisters were in a nearby ghetto until they were sent to Auschwitz in 1943, where Ms. Brandman narrowly survived selection and disease. In 1945 after a death march and one more concentration camp, Ms. Brandman was liberated by American and Russian armies.
Today, she is a retired public school teacher, advocate for Israel, and volunteers her time as both a Gallery Educator and a member of the Speakers Bureau of the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. It is an honor to have Ms. Brandman as part of our community and we hope you can join us.
Ms. Brandman's talk will be followed by Q&A.
Optional dinner will be served at 6:30pm, Talk begins promptly at 7:00pm.
