Featured Speaker Ilse Eichner Reiner

Orphaned at an early age, Ilse Eichner Reiner was sent to the ghetto and concentration camp of Theresienstadt. Of 15,000 child prisoners there, she was one of 100 who survived - only to be deported to Auschwitz. Almost immediately, she was sent to a slave labor camp and then miraculously escaped from a death march. Following her liberation by the Russians, and with great resilience, Ilse built a life enriched by family, culture, and joy.

Jointly sponsored by Eternal Life – Hemshech, the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, and the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum.

    Historic Jewish Atlanta Tour: The Beltline

    Plunge into historic Jewish Atlanta with exclusive tours of some of the city's most significant sites! Twenty years ago, a Georgia Tech grad student outlined a vision in a master's thesis that has literally transformed the Gate City. Today, nothing reflects the Atlanta's 21st Century urban renewal better than the Beltline, a network of railroad tracks converted into biking and walking trails that will form a contiguous loop of 33 miles once completed. Join us for a tour of Atlanta's past and present as we ponder what, exactly, these trends portend for the future.
