In connection with the Holocaust Education Week in Florida, Chabad Jewish Center of St. Petersburg will host an eye-opening, educational encounter with Helga Melmed, a survivor of Auschwitz. Helga’s story of impossible challenge and resilience is important for us all to hear. Born in Berlin in 1928, Helga vividly remembers the growing antisemitism in Germany. She speaks with painful clarify of life in the Lodz ghetto, the labor camp in Hamburg-Sasel, the marches of Bergen-Belsen and what she witnessed in the infamous Auschwitz death camp.
This evening promises to be one of inspiration, remembrance, and celebration of the indomitable human spirit. Helga Melmed’s story is a testament to the strength of the human soul, and Anthony Cook’s cello performance will touch your heart and elevate your spirits.
Presented by Chabad of St. Petersburg.
