Please join the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center on November 17 at 7 p.m. from the safety and comfort of your own home to listen to GenerationsForward speaker Lisa Salko.

Lisa tells the incredible story of “13 Jewish Drivers’ Licenses”. In November, 2018, Lisa, her sisters, and cousins traveled to Lichtenfels, Bavaria, Germany to reclaim their grandfather’s and two great uncle’s driver’s licenses, which were confiscated by the Nazis shortly after Kristallnacht, and rediscovered while the town was digitizing records in 2017.  What started out as a trip to claim a part of their family turned into something much bigger than them.  “13 Jewish Driver’s Licenses” is about a small Bavarian town coming to terms with its dark past.  It is about a story of discovery, exploration, reflection, and reconciliation, human connection, and “doing the right thing.”  Lisa takes us on an emotional journey about her week-long trip that coincided with the 80th Anniversary of Kristallnacht.  It is an important story and extremely relevant given the rise of antisemitism occurrences in the world today.

Lisa and her husband live in Westchester are proud parents of two children and have one grandson.  She is a real estate professional, enjoys tennis, and reading a good book.
