Bearing Witness: Ben Walker (Romania)

March 24, 2019 Atlanta Free 0

Ben was six years old when he and his family were ordered to report to the railroad station within four hours. He and his mother survived the Holocaust in conditions beyond description in Transnistria, in southern Ukraine. Following the war, he and his mother immigrated to Israel where he served in the Israeli army. Mr. Walker later moved to the United States, where he attended the University of Florida and Syracuse University before moving to Atlanta.

The Breman Museum is proud to offer free admission to Bearing Witness through a generous grant from the Sara Giles Moore Foundation.

The speakers of Bearing Witness, all Atlanta residents, recall their experiences during the Holocaust. Their words rise above hatred and retribution to speak about the strength and will that enabled them to survive and go on to build new lives.

We hope students, families, and young professionals will take advantage of this offering because it is vitally important their generation continues to share the stories once our witness generation.

Guided tours of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:00 PM. Speakers will tell their remarkable Holocaust stories beginning at 2:00 PM.

Free Parking is available at the museum (with free overflow parking available at The John Marshal Law School on 18th between W. Peachtree and Spring) and seating is first-come, first-served, so be sure to arrive early in order to secure your spot!

Free admission to the 2018 Bearing Witness Series is provided through a generous gift from The Sara Giles Moore Foundation.

 

This event is presented by the Weinberg Center for Holocaust Education at The Breman Museum and our community partner Eternal-Life Hemshech.
