Join us for an evening of remembrance and reflection with Holocaust survivor Steven Hess, a special viewing of the Violins of Hope exhibit, and a performance with a violin rescued from the Holocaust during the pre-program reception.
Steven Hess and his twin sister were born in Amsterdam in 1938 to German-Jewish refugees. Following Nazi occupation, the Hess family was first taken to Westerbork, a Dutch transit camp, before being sent to Bergen-Belsen. They were among less than 5% of Jews deported from Holland that survived to the war’s end.
This event is free and open to the public, and registration is encouraged. For more information, email Maggie Hartley, EdD, Director of Public Engagement, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sponsored by Taube Philanthropies, the event is part of the Taube Family Holocaust Education Program.
