Posted by Admin On 8/25/2014 0 comments
Want to help out the HTS undergraduate program in its recruitment efforts?  Know how to convert a PSD document to HTML?  Apparently, Dr. D'Unger can do it, but only 1/2 way (the images disappear).  If you have a 1/2 hour to spare to help out the undergraduate program, please email Dr. D'Unger.  Thank you!

The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum presents, “Bearing Witness: Holocaust Survivors Tell Their Remarkable Stories,” a series of six live and interactive presentations beginning September 7, 2014. Each program is free due to a generous grant from the Sara Giles Moore Foundation.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to witness testimony directly from a Holocaust Survivor and gain a first-hand account of life during the Holocaust. In honor of Bearing Witness, The Breman Museum’s Holocaust Gallery will be open and free to the public from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Docents will be available during the hours of 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm to give tours.

All of the speakers are Atlanta residents with very different experiences. As they recall the horrors of the Holocaust their words rise above hatred and retribution to speak about the strength and will that enabled them to survive.

Each event will be held at the museum – 1440 Spring Street NW (18th Street), Atlanta, GA, 30309 at 2:00 pm.
