Bearing Witness: Henry Friedman

Bearing Witness: Henry Friedman

Bearing Witness: Henry Friedman

Henry Friedman

A Holocaust survivor from Hungary, Henry was saved from a forced march by legendary Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg. He attributes his surviving a firing squad and countless atrocities to the protection of his grandmother's blessing.

We would like audiences to take away two things from our Bearing Witness programs. First, to take warning that the Holocaust was perpetrated by a country of culture and refinement in the heart of civilized Europe; and second, to marvel at the indomitable spirit of Holocaust survivors who have overcome unprecedented evil with strength, courage and enduring hope.

This Holocaust oral history event in Atlanta is FREE.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at info@thebreman.org

Day of Event:

A guided tour of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:30 PM.

Dolce Café lunch items will be available for purchase from 12pm – 1:30pm

Mr. Friedman will be telling his remarkable Holocaust story beginning at 2:00 PM.

 

Free Parking is available at the museum (with free overflow parking available at The John Marshal Law School on 18th between W. Peachtree and Spring) and seating is first-come, first-served, so be sure to arrive early in order to secure your spot!
