HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR SPEAKER
Renee Firestone
Sunday, September 3 at 3:00 pm

Renee was born in Uzhorod, Czechoslovakia, an area annexed to Hungary in 1938. In 1944, when she was 20 years old, Nazi Germany invaded Hungary. Soon after the invasion, Renee's family was deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Throughout the following year, Renee was imprisoned there and in other camps around Europe. She was liberated in 1945. She has been actively involved with the Museum, and has spoken all over the world about her experiences and about genocide.

This talk will be preceded by a docent-led tour at 2:00 pm. 
With gratitude to the Joseph Drown Foundation for its generous support of free Holocaust education and school tours, to the Michael & Irene Ross Endowment Fund for its generous support of Voices of History programs, and to the Max H.
