Lunchtime Culture Series

Overview

The Breman Museum, Center for Puppetry Arts, and High Museum of Art are partnering to bring the Midtown community something new between 12 noon and 1p.m. The program pairs two of the institutions for a conversation, performance, or tour experience from a new perspective. Each lunchtime program is free and lasts approximately 20 minutes (with time to explore the Museum's exhibitions after the program.)

    George was born in Warsaw, Poland. As an infant he was thrown over the barbed-wire fence of the Warsaw 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.
