Join the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center as we welcome Rebecca Freimann, author and 3rd generation speaker as part of our Memory Keepers: GenerationsForward Speaker Series

As part of our mission, we have established the Memory Keepers Online Cocktail Hour–our stories, where our members share their family’s experiences.  Each cocktail hour, a Memory Keeper will give testimony, which can be seen online from the safety and comfort of your own home.

We tell our family’s story from our next generation perspective, adding new meaning to the survivors’ powerful stories of witness.  Our stories provide a thought-provoking window into the unimaginable consequences of human hate, and help individuals realize that their daily choices matter, that one person can make a difference and that hope is important, regardless of the circumstances.  Last Friday, over 120 people joined us in listening to Sam Rosmarin share his family’s experience.

This Friday, Rebecca Freimann will share her family’s story of three family branches and their struggles to survive.

As part of the GenerationsForward initiative of the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center, Memory Keepers help achieve its mission to teach the lessons of the Holocaust, to promote the right of all people to be treated with dignity and respect, and to encourage speaking up and acting against all forms of hate, bigotry, and prejudice.
