Bearing Witness: Ben Walker (Romania)

Bearing Witness

Ben Walker will be speaking as part of The Breman Museum's oral history event series titled Bearing Witness: Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust.

Ben was six years old when he and his family were ordered to report to the railroad station within four hours. He and his mother survived the Holocaust in conditions beyond description in Transnistria, in southern Ukraine. Following the war, he and his mother immigrated to Israel where he served in the Israeli army. Mr. Walker later moved to the United States, where he attended the University of Florida and Syracuse University before moving to Atlanta.

    Harry Houdini: Pulling Back the Veil in Search of Cecelia

    Harry Houdini had an obsessive love/hate relationship with magic and the supernatural. While performing inexplicable feats of magic for millions around the world, he diligently reminded his audiences that he had no occult powers. However, when his mother, Cecelia Weisz, died; he turned to the supernatural in a desperate attempt to pull back the Veil and contact her. Houdini became a regular at seances, and psychic readings, usually finding con artists and fraud. Rolando Santos will look at the world of spiritualism that Harry Houdini encountered as he was : Pulling Back the Veil in Search of Cecelia.
