Unforgettable Stories from The Holocaust

Helen Weingarten will be telling her unforgettable story at The Breman Museum

In January we will mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Helen will tell her story on stage joined by her daughter Sue Levy. Helen was one of seven children. She entered Auschwitz as one of five sisters, but only four survived. Helen narrowly escaped death when the 500 women she was with were redirected from the entrance to the gas chambers and sent to Germany for slave labor. On the afternoon of January 27, 1945, Allied troops entered the Auschwitz concentration camp, liberating the 7,500 prisoners still living, discovering the corpses of 600 more and the ashes of another 1.1 million.

Guided tours of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:30 PM. Helen will be telling her unforgettable story beginning at 2:00 PM.Free Parking is available at the museum (with free overflow parking available at The John Marshall 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!

This event is FREE.
