How can a Holocaust monument enable us to see beyond the statistics and think about individual victims?
In 28 countries, small monuments memorialize victims of the Nazis. Although the design is uniform, the details of the Stolpersteine [stumbling blocks] allow us to better understand the human cost of the Holocaust. Terry Swartzberg, an American who now lives in Germany, is spearheading this form of commemoration so that locals and visitors alike can better understand the human cost of the Holocaust.
Terry, a leading figure in this commemoration movement, will teach us about this project’s origins and why it is such a meaningful commemoration.
Appetizers will be served from 2-2:30 pm and program will begin at 2:30pm.
This program is a partnership between Congregation Shalom and the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center.
Generously sponsored by Becky and Bill Komisar.
