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


Natalie Gonenn was born in Chelm, Poland. In 1939, she went into hiding in an underground bunker for 8 months. She was smuggled across the border to Russia. In Russia she lived in train stations and cattle wagons. She eventually made her way back to Poland and lived in an orphanage. After the war Natalie lived in a D.P. camp for a few months until she made her way to Palestine, arriving at age twelve. Natalie later served in the Israeli army. She immigrated to the United States in 1960.
