GERMANTOWN, Wis. (June 9, 2023) - A special program titled, “An Evening with Eva Zaret, Holocaust Survivor” will be held Tuesday, June 27, 2023 at the Germantown Performing Arts Center, W180N11501 North River Lane.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Following the presentation, there will be a guided discussion and Q&A opportunity with Eva and the staff from the Nathan and Ester Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center (HERC) and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of Milwaukee Jewish Federation.
The Germantown community has been experiencing an alarming rise in antisemitism in 2023. The Germantown Community Coalition and Germantown Youth Futures believe in the power of education to address issues impacting our community. Therefore, they are co-hosting this program with invited guests from HERC and JCRC.
The featured speaker is Holocaust survivor Eva Zaret, who was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1936. Eva lived through the Holocaust in the Budapest Ghetto with her mother. After the war, she regained her health in the Carpathian Mountains with her family. On a trip into the city, her family was caught in the outbreak of the Hungarian Revolution, which she and her husband escaped on foot, eventually coming to the United States.
Designed for middle schoolers to adults, this program can be an excellent way for families to have important conversations about subjects that might not be easy for everyone to talk about.
The presentation is open to the public. There is no charge to attend but tickets need to be reserved in advance.
