The UCLA Festival of Preservation engagements featuring This Is Your Life, Hanna Bloch Kohner, has completed its 2011-2012 tour at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Julie Kohner was the guest speaker on Sunday evening, May 20, 2012 at the museum. Three episodes of This Is Your Life featured Holocaust survivor’s stories, and Julie as the guest speaker for an introductory talk about her mother, Hanna Bloch Kohner, one of three television show guests, and the first Holocaust survivor to have her story told to a national television audience. A question & answer session with Julie Kohner followed the showing. Thanks to Marian Luntz for hosting Julie’s visit, and, the Holocaust Museum Houston for helping to sponsor this engagement.
As this was the final stop for this year’s Festival of Preservation tour, I would like to extend a special thank you to the Ralph and Barbara Edwards Family Foundation for helping to fund this speaking tour.
