Bearing Witness: Murray Lynn (Hungary)

Bearing Witness: Unforgettable Stories from the Holocaust featuring Murray Lynn (Hungary)

Murray Lynn was only 14 years old when he, his mother and three brothers were sent by cattle train to Auschwitz-Birkenau. His mother and brothers were murdered upon their arrival, but Murray survived despite unbearable conditions and a death march that lasted many weeks. As an orphaned teenager, he was sent to England, Ireland and ultimately America, where he began a new life.

This Holocaust oral history event in Atlanta is FREE.

    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.
