As a neighbor of Germany, Czechoslovakia was one of the first countries to face the Nazi onslaught. Join us to learn from Professor Gerhard Weinberg (UNC) and documentarian and author of the children’s book, Hana’s Suitcase, Karen Levine, about the fascinating history of this country. The program will conclude with testimony from a survivor about her experiences during the Holocaust.
We acknowledge in appreciation the Jewish Conference of Material Claims Against Germany for supporting this educational program. Through recovering the assets of the victims of the Holocaust the Claims Conference enables organizations around the world to provide education about the Shoah and to preserve the memory of those who perished.
