09/10/2017- Bearing Witness Henry (Hank) Lewin

Henry (Hank) Lewin (Second Generation Lithuania)

Hank tells the story of his parents, Nora and Joel Lewin who were married in Kovno, Lithuania, and endured separation and several concentration camps to survive the Holocaust. He remembers Gideon, a brother he never knew who was killed in Auschwitz at the age of two.

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:

Guided tours of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:00 PM. Mr. Lewin 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!

Free admission to the 2017 Bearing Witness Series is provided through a generous gift from The Sara Giles Moore Foundation.

This event is presented by the Weinberg Center for Holocaust Education at The Breman Museum and our community partner Eternal-Life Hemshech.
