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
