Holocaust Rescuers - Overcoming Evil

Holocaust Rescuers - Overcoming Evil

Please join us for the opportunity to learn about several remarkable stories of the rescue of German Jews on Kristallnacht by righteous and courageous non-Jews and hear directly from Holocaust survivor, Ida Paluch Kersz, who was rescued by Polish Christians, Wilhelm and Josefa Maj. Ms. Kersz will also share the story of her  53-year search for her twin brother, Adam.

The second week in November marks the 79th anniversary of  “Kristallnacht” – “Night of Broken Glass,” when in 1938, violent anti-Jewish actions, orchestrated by the Nazi government, raged throughout Germany and lands under German control.  Many historians view “Kristallnacht” as the beginning of the Holocaust.
