MUSEUM IN THE NEWS:
Paul S. Nussbaum Quoted in Jewish Journal
 
LAMOTH President and CEO Paul S. Nussbaum recently returned from Europe where he traveled throughout Poland as a guest of the Los Angeles Polish Consulate with other Jewish community leaders, visited Jewish synagogues and institutions, and participated in high level discussions with leaders from those organizations and local government. After Poland, Paul spent a week in Budapest where he met with government officials in the Prime Minister's office and shared his concerns about Hungary's right wing nationalistic government policy, specifically their most recent anti-immigration campaign that targets George Soros with his face plastered on billboards and bus depots all over the city.

SURVIVOR SPEAKER SERIES:
Mary Bauer
Sunday, July 23 at 3:00 pm

Mary was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1927. When she was a teenager, her father was conscripted into labor service. In 1944, Nazi Germany invaded Hungary, and Mary and her family were sent to live in a ghetto. A few months later, they were sent to Auschwitz-Birkanau. After spending several months in Auschwitz, they were sent on a death march to Ravensbruck. They were liberated by Soviet troops in Malchow, a subcamp of Rabensbruck, in May 1945. Mary immigrated to the United States in 1951 where she married and had two sons. She has been actively involved with the Museum for many years.

The talk will be preceded by a docent-led tour at 2:00 pm.
