Holocaust survivor and Breman Museum speaker Bebe Forehand presents her remarkable story of resilience at this free presentation.

Like Anne Frank, Bebe Forehand was hidden away from the Nazis in an attic. A friend brought food, books, and materials to read during the months while her family was in hiding. As a result, her mother, father, grandfather, and brother were all able to survive the Holocaust.

Seating is limited - reserve your seat today.
