EPHM Book Club

Born Survivors

by Wendy Holden

Sunday – September 11, 2016

11:00 amBornSurvivors

Please join us for the discussion of an amazing true story of three women sent to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp. These women, torn from their husbands and families, arrived in Auschwitz lonely and afraid, but also pregnant.

Concealing their pregnancies, they suffer through the work and starvation of Auschwitz, while also living in constant fear that their conditions will be discovered. This heart-wrenching story reveals the courage and strength of three mothers who defied death to give their children life.

The Book Club discussion will be moderated by Michelle Blumenfeld.

Book available in Museum Bookstore

Refreshments will be served

Please RSVP: 915.351.0048 / jamie@elpasoholocaustmuseum.org

Remember Me: Children of the Holocaust

PostCard_front

 Special exhibit for and about children

 

Grand Opening: Saturday – August 6, 2016

1:00 – 5:00 pm

Remember Me: Children of the Holocaust is the harrowing story of the Holocaust as told through the eyes of its youngest victims and survivors.  Using diaries and survivor testimonies the story unfolds of lives forever changed by bigotry and prejudice.  Beginning with pre-war life, family pictures, narratives, artifacts, and recorded diary excerpts, this exhibit will engage even the youngest visitors as they travel through the unfolding events of the children’s lives (rise of Nazism, ghettos, hiding, and rescue).

The exhibit’s interactive and hands-on design brings history to life and will engage visitors of all ages in discovering the experiences of children of the Holocaust while also encouraging those who see it to be Upstanders in their community- no matter their age.

Recommended for 6 years old and above.

Featured Survivor Testimony

We are so very fortunate to have a substantial video archive of stories by local El Paso residents who were Holocaust Survivors. Each week we will feature a different survivor and one of their amazing video stories. We encourage everyone to take just a few moments to watch these amazing videos.

This is Sara Hauptman. Sara worked in the resistance until her arrest and deportation to Auschwitz. She was then sent to Dachau and was liberated by the American Army in 1945. You can read her bio and see more of her video testimonies here.
