Reflections on Resistance: After Auschwitz – An Afternoon with Eva Schloss.
Join us for our annual Kristallnacht Commemoration
Sunday, November 12, 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Eva, 86, is an Auschwitz survivor and the stepsister of Anne Frank. Both Frank and Schloss were Jewish refugees in Amsterdam together and the pair played together as children until their families were forced into hiding in 1942. After the war, Otto Frank (Anne’s father) married Fritzi (Eva’s mother). Eva Schloss is the co-founder of the Anne Frank Trust UK and the author of several books about her experiences during the Holocaust. Hear Eva tell of her personal journey through the Holocaust, her life after Auschwitz and the artwork that survived her brother’s time in hiding during the war.
This is a program open to the community and appropriate for participants 11 years old and up.
Reflections on Resistance is made possible by the generous support of the Ingrid D. Tauber Philanthropic Fund. Additional support is provided by the Holocaust Memorial Education Fund of the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties.
Eva will also be at a showing of the documentary, 116 Cameras, that was premiered in the Jewish film festival.
