Eva Trenk was four years old when
she and her family were deported to a labor camp in Zilina, a city in Western Slovakia. Within a year, Eva, her mother and brother managed to escape the camp and acquire false identification papers, which allowed them to live as non-Jews in several different villages. Toward the end of the war, they were caught and sent to a concentration camp in Sered, where they remained until the Soviet army liberated them in April 1945. After the war, Eva married and had a son. They lived in Slovakia until 1969 when they immigrated to the United States.
The talk will be preceded by a docent-led tour at 2:00 pm.
