Bearing Witness - Unforgettable Stories from the Holocaust (Robert Ratonyi)

BEARING WITNESS

FEATURING: Robert Ratonyi, a Holocaust survivor from Hungary

WHEN: SUN FEB 26 | 2 PM

COST: Free (Seating is limited Reserve your seat Click Here) 


Mr. Ratonyi remembers a childhood scarred by fear, upheaval, hunger and loss. He was six years old when forced to wear a yellow star and face the terrors of war and ghetto life without his parents, both of whom were deported to concentration camps. He grew up under a communist dictatorship and escaped Hungary following the bloody uprising of 1956. A graduate of MIT and Drexel University, Robert went on to a successful business career.

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.
