As part of our mission, the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center has established the Memory Keepers Online Cocktail Hour–our stories, where our members will 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 on 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.

On Friday, May 8, at 5 p.m., Sam Rosmarin will share his family’s story.

Sam Rosmarin is the son of two Holocaust Survivors.  He tells their remarkable story of hope and resilience.

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