From Kristallnacht/Pogromnacht to Liberation

An Evening with Ernie Gross and Don Greenbaum

Ernie Gross and Don Greenbaum

Please join HAMEC speakers Ernie Gross and Don Greenbaum, in a partnership with Main Line Reform Temple and Jewish War Veterans Post 697, as they provide testimony about their experiences of survival and liberation during the Holocaust. Seventy-Five years after the liberation of Dachau Concentration Camp, it is more important than ever to remember and learn to combat the hate that led to the Holocaust, and to commemorate the liberation of the camps as we also honor the veterans who bore witness.

The event will be held on Tuesday, November 10th from 7:00-8:00 p.m. via Zoom.
