Bearing Witness: George Rishfeld (Poland)

George Rishfeld (Poland): Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

George Rishfeld (Poland): Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust

George Rishfeld (Poland)

George was born in Warsaw, Poland. As an infant he was thrown over the barbed-wire fence of the Vilna 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.

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
