Bearing Witness: Henry "Hank" Lewin

Unforgettable Stories from the Holocaust

Bearing Witness

Hank tells the story of his parents, Nora and Joel Lewin who were married in Kovno, Lithuania, and endured separation and several concentration camps to survive the holocaust. He remembers Gideon, a brother he never knew who was killed in Auschwitz at the age of two.

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 Riches 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.

Event Details

Guided tours of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:30 PM. Henry will be telling his unforgettable 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!

This event is FREE.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at info@thebreman.org or 678-222-3700.
