Miriam Fishkin: Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

Miriam Fishkin (Poland)

When she was ten, Miriam and her family were forced from their home by the Russian secret police who controlled the region, and sent to Siberia. There, despite the relentless hard work and bitterly cold weather, she survived the war.

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.

Admission to this Holocaust oral history event is FREE.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at info@thebreman.org

Day of Event:

A guided tour of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:30 PM. Miriam Fishkin will be telling her 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.

    George Rishfeld (Poland): Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

    George was born in Warsaw, Poland. As an infant he was thrown over the barbed-wire fence of the Warsaw Ghetto into the waiting arms of Halinka, the daughter of a man that worked for George’s father. Risking their own lives, they hid George for the remainder of the war taking him out into the community and to church as if he was their own.
