VOG at Roosevelt University, Chicago

Thanks to Margaret Rung, Director, Center for New Deal Studies, at Roosevelt University for the warm introduction, along with the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Center for hosting VOG with students and faculty on October 23.  There were numerous questions from the audience, including a discussion of survivors guilt. I read a passage from my parents book that describes my mother’s feelings about surviving while others perished around her. As I explained, my mother attributed her survival to luck. As always, the discussion was engaging and the message of “never to forget” was instilled upon the audience.

VOG at Emanuel Congregation, Chicago

Just back from Chicago where we presented Voices of the Generations to the students and parents at Emanuel Congregation. Thanks to Rabbi Craig Marantz and Educational Director, Tani Prell for hosting. Also thrilled to introduce Mickey (Shucart) Reiss, the daughter of American liberator, Sgt. Harold Shucart, to the congregation after viewing This Is Your Life, Hanna Bloch Kohner. We took many questions from the audience who had the chance to hear from both descendants of a survivor and a liberator.
