Bebe Forehand: Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

Bebe Forehand: Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

Bebe Forehand (Belgium)

Like Anne Frank, Bebe Forehand was hidden away from the Nazis in an attic. A family friend brought food, books and materials to read during the hours while they were in hiding. As a result, her mother, father, grandfather and brother were all able to survive the Holocaust.

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.

Dolce Café lunch items will be available for purchase from 12pm – 1:30pm

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. Bebe Forehand 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 Marshall 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.
