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.

      Jews of Color in Early America with Author Laura Leibman

      The Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia presents this exclusive author talk with Professor Laura Leibman author of Once We Were Slaves: The Extraordinary Journey of a Multi-Racial Jewish Family. Professor Leibman will share the extraordinary story of a Jewish genealogist from a prominent American family with a Jewish American pedigree going back before the Revolutionary War. She was searching for her grandmother's maternal line, and expected to find wealthy Sephardic Jews. Instead, she found poor, enslaved ancestors whose life stories will upend many of the ideas that we have about ourselves.
