As part of the Infinite Light  citywide festival, Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust welcomed 50 young professionals and six Holocaust Survivors for L'Dough V'Dough: Light and Miracles. Attendees connected and shared life stories with Holocaust Survivors, baked Hanukkah cookies, and crafted Hanukkiahs that were donated to the Israel Levin Senior Ce nter for their Hanukkah celebrations. Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust partnered with NuRoots, a program of the Jewish Federation, Aish Ignite, and 3G at LAMOTH  for this special program that celebrated intergenerational conversation, Jewish traditions, and the miracle of Hanukkah.

All of us at LAMOTH wish you a very happy Hanukkah and a joyous holiday season!

Opening Reception: Rita Rimalower-Nettler's Postcards to Zurich, 1940-1942 
Sunday, January 15, 2017, at 2:00 pm

LAMOTH Board member and docent Michele Gold will share the original collection of documents highlighting the experience of her mother, Rita Rimalower-Nettler, during the Holocaust. Between 1940 and 1942, Rita sent dozens of postcards, six of which are on exhibit at LAMOTH, pleading for information about her parents' fate. Each postcard tells a painful, heartbreaking story of separation and loss, themes also echoed in the personal narrative of Holocaust Survivor Eva Brettler. Eva will speak to the loss of her own mother as an eight-year-old girl during the Holocaust. These personal narratives exemplify the experiences and collective voices of children during the Holocaust.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP to michael@lamoth.org or (323) 456-5083.
