Telling Our Families' Stories Panel Discussion

Telling Our Families' Stories

Sunday, April 10, 2016
National Museum of American Jewish History
101 S Independence Mall E, Philadelphia, PA 19106

Join us for a stimulating inter-generational program which includes a discussion panel and an opportunity for you to continue the conversation using Museum resources.

We especially encourage children and grandchildren of survivors to attend this unique event, but all are welcome.

The discussion panel includes local educators including Child Holocaust Survivor Daniel Goldsmith, Shari Glauser (daughter of Holocaust Survivor Kurt Herman z"l), and Avi Wisnia (grandson of Holocaust Survivor Cantor David Wisnia). They will be sharing their personal or family's experience before, during, and after the Holocaust and discuss what moves them to keep the stories alive and relevant today.

A light reception for survivor families will take place after the presentation.

After the presentation you'll have three options to continue the conversation by

  • Touring the Dreams of Freedom exhibit with a Docent
  • Sharing your family's story in the It's Your Story booth
  • Responding to questions in the Contemporary Issues Forum

Attendees with small children may have one parent/grandparent take their children to participate in the free NMAJH Second Sunday Passover programming during the presentation.

Pre-registration requested due to space limitations. Please contact Tammy Forstater at 215-464-4701 or tammy@hamec.org to register and for further information. Presentations appropriate for 13 and up.

This is a free event with admission to the National Museum of American Jewish History.
This event is in partnership with the National Museum of American Jewish History.
