PROGRAM SERIES: “I REMEMBER”
Throughout 2016 the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida will be celebrating its 30th anniversary. During the year we will present special programming that honors both the past and the future of the Center.
Included in the plans is a series entitled I Remember: Reflections of Eyewitnesses to the Holocaust which will feature local Holocaust survivors who will share their stories. These programs will begin on January 27, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and will include a brief presentation by the Center’s Founder, Tess Wise. That evening will also feature the opening of a new exhibit, The Profound Effect.
Upcoming programs will feature presentations by Survivors Gene Klein (Feb 21) and Helen Greenspun (March 20).
Our Community Book Club meets every other month on a Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Holocaust Center’s library. Everyone is welcome to join at any time; there is no cost to participate.
January 24, 2016 – Poet Chaya Rosen will join us to discuss this selection of her poems.
Chaya Rosen’s multi-cultural background includes an upbringing heavily influenced by the post-Holocaust era, and an inspiring childhood in Israel. She received a BA in Communication from the University of Colorado and a Masters of Science in Management from Rivier College, New Hampshire. Her writing is based on a life-long spiritual and introspective quest as a daughter of Holocaust Survivors.
