Holocaust Survivor Testimony: Chris Lerman
April 16, 2013 - 7:30 pm (already occurred)
Join us to hear the moving and compelling testimony of Holocaust survivor Chris Lerman. She and her two sisters spent three years in various prison and labor campus during World War II, a year and a half of which was in Auschwitz-Berkenau. She and her sisters survived when an Auschwitz secretary took pity on the girls and allowed them to work in an indoor work detail. Following the war, Chris met Miles Lerman at a Displaced Persons Camp in Poland. The two married and immigrated to the United States.
Chris will be joined by her daughter, who will also show a short film she made about her mother's time in Auschwitz.
