Unforgettable Stories From The Holocaust with Holocaust Survivor George Rishfeld (Poland)

Admission is free. Preregistration is required to reserve your seat.

Holocaust survivor and Breman Museum speaker George Rishfeld presents his remarkable story of resilience at this free presentation. Seating is limited.

George was born in Warsaw, Poland. As an infant, he was thrown over the barbed-wire fence of the Vilna Ghetto into the waiting arms of Halinka, the daughter of a man who worked for George’s father. Risking their own lives, they hid George for the remainder of the war taking him out into the community and to church as if he was their own.
