Bearing Witness: Alfred Schneider, PhD

Unforgettable Stories from the Holocaust

PROGRAM CANCELLATION

Out of an abundance of caution and in respect for our speaker and patrons, the 12:30 tour and the BEARING WITNESS program featuring Alfred Schneider Ph.D. scheduled for this Sunday (March 15th) is canceled and will be rescheduled. Thank you for your understanding.

Those of you who have direct contact with persons you know were planning to come, please contact them in case they do not get this message. Watch our website and social media for updates. The museum will be open to the public at for General Admission for FREE this Sunday. 

Bearing Witness

Even though school was illegal in Romania for Jews in 1941, Alfred and two friends started their own course of studies and were later tutored by teachers within the ghetto. His academic prowess, ability to learn multiple languages and musical talents proved pivotal to his survival. Alfred Schneider overcame many challenges after the Holocaust as he laid the foundations for a new life.

This is the 12th 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 Rich 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 survivor generation is rapidly diminishing.

Program Details

Guided tours of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:30 PM. Alfred 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.

    The Righteous: A Play Reading & Discussion

    What would you do if you learned that your country was enacting a plan to annihilate an entire people? That is the gut-wrenching question faced by Eduard Schulte, a captain of German industry who was familiar with the Nazi High Command. Schulte’s identity was a closely guarded secret and his heroic act to attempt to stop the Holocaust was kept hidden for over forty years. The Righteous brings to light the remarkable and inspiring true story of Eduard Schulte.

    THE JAZZ SINGER | Blacks, Jews, and Jazz | Live Discussion

    The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson was the first hit Hollywood film musical with synchronized sound. Telling a story about Jewish assimilation via jazz music, the film notoriously featured Al Jolson in blackface for its climatic numbers. Join Dr. Dwight Andrews and Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein for discussion of its use of jazz, its racial dynamics, and its place in the long and unfortunate history of the representation of Blackface, which persists to this day.
