Julie Kohner, Founder and CEO of Voices of the Generations, presented the VOG program to an enthusiastic audience of high school grades 10-12, community college freshman and sophomores at Andover High School in El Dorado, Kansas. The well received program was sponsored by Butler Community College, and covered by the Butler College television station and Lantern newspaper at Butler College.
A very special Yom Ha Shoah program was presented this afternoon at American Jewish University, with Julie Kohner as the guest speaker. In honoring the memory of 6 million through the telling of not just one, but three personal stories from second generation survivors. With Julie today were her cousin, Illana Bloch, daughter of Dr. Gotfried Bloch, Hanna Bloch Kohner’s brother, and also a survivor of Aushwitz, and Rene Florsheim, daughter of Eva Florsheim, Hanna’s dear friend who had also survived the same four camps as Hanna.
Throughout the presentation, the emphasis continued to come back that it is up to the next generation to continue to share the legacy of the Holocaust. And one way to continue this is through contact with survivors and their children. Sadly, there are fewer survivors today, and the responsibility has to fall upon the next generation so the the words “we must never forget” continue to have meaning.
