Join us at 1 P.M. on select Sundays to hear testimony from a Holocaust survivor. Free with admission.


Fay Brandwein was born in Pothamien, Poland. In 1942, she and her family were taken from their hometown to the Brody Ghetto. They remained there until May 1943, when the Ghetto was liquidated. Fay, her mother, and brother were able to escape. From June 1943 until liberation in March 1944, they hid in the forest. Since her arrival in America, Fay has taught children and worked with the elderly in a nursing home as well as doing volunteer work in the community.
