Bearing Witness: Unforgettable Stories from the Holocaust

September 7, 2014 – May 3, 2015

Each of these events is made free of charge through a generous grant from the Sara Giles Moore Foundation

Bearing Witness

The messages imparted by the Holocaust Survivors in the Bearing Witness series transcend historical text or chronology and speak directly to the capabilities of the human condition. All of the speakers are Atlanta residents, and as they recall the horrors of the Holocaust their words rise above hatred and retribution to speak about the strength and will that enabled them to survive. Each event will be held at museum on Sundays at 2 p.m. on the dates below:

  • Sept. 7

    Tosia Schneider, Survivor from Poland and author of the memoir Someone Must Survive to Tell the World

  • Nov. 2

    Herbert Kohn, Survivor from Germany and eyewitness to Kristallnacht

  • Dec. 14

  • One Region Free Day at The Breman

    Sunday, September 21 - All Day

    September 21, 2014 is the International Day of Peace. The Breman Museum is opening its doors to the public so that people can view our exhibition Peace: What Does It Mean To You? and explore the meaning of peace in their lives.

    At 2:00 PM, the Breman Museum will host the 2014 Atlanta Compassion Games Closing Ceremonies. The Compassion Games, which take place from 9/11 to 9/21, are designed to make our communities safer, kinder, more just, and better places to live through random acts of kindness, being a secret agent of compassion or volunteering with a Metro-Atlanta organization that is already involved in compassionate action.

    Compassionate Atlanta's program will feature:
    - music led by Aviva Kessler (of Aviva and the Flying Penguins)
    - a report on the 2014 Atlanta Compassion Games
    - a group interactive experience by Audrey Galax of Atlanta Interfaith Broadcasting
    - an opportunity to sign the Charter for Compassion

    Book Talk & Signing with Sandy Berman, author of Klara with a K

    October 26, 2014 at 2:00 PM

    Included in the Price Regular Museum Admission

    Klara with a KAfter liberation from the horrors of Buchenwald, eighteen-year-old Klara is given the unique opportunity to leave the past behind and forge a new life, with a new identity, in the American South. In Atlanta, Georgia, covering up her past becomes increasingly burdensome as Klara realizes she has more in common with "the help" than her husband's country club friends. The Jim Crow laws that rule the day are uncomfortably similar to the Nuremburg Laws, and so Klara find great solace in joining the fight for Civil Rights. But in the end, only a difficult visit from her past can free Klara from the web of lies in which she lives.
