Bearing Witness: George Rishfeld (Poland) - The Breman Museum

Bearing Witness: George Rishfeld (Poland)
Nov 17 2019 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Bearing Witness: George Rishfeld (Poland)

Unforgettable Stories from the Holocaust

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.

This is the 11th year the Breman Museum is presenting Bearing Witness. Each year attendance increases attracting a broader audience representing Atlantans of all backgrounds.  A barrier for many to hear this live testimony from the Holocaust has been the price of admission. A generous grant from the Sara Giles Moore Foundation allows everyone to hear these stories first-hand at no cost. Everyone is invited to take advantage of this free offering because it is vitally important to share the stories as the witness generation is rapidly diminishing.

This event is FREE.
