This month WWII Veteran, Alan Moskin had the opportunity to meet a Holocaust survivor, Lipot Rubenstein, who survived Gunskirchen Lager - a concentration camp that Alan helped liberate on May 4, 1945. Seventy-five years after the events, the two were interviewed by Mr. Rubinstein's son, and discussed their shared history and lives after the war.
Our Multi-Cultural Film Series continued this month with a screening of the
documentary, What Our Fathers Did. A large crowd attended to watch the film that followed sons of top Nazi officials as they grappled with their personal legacies of the Holocaust. Lively discussion followed as our Director of Archives hosted a talk-back.

As we build our new museum, HMCTE team and our designers have taken several trips to other museums in search of inspiration. So far we have traveled to seven
museums in New York City and New Orleans to critique relevant exhibits and
approaches to presenting sensitive history. Our trips have proved very fruitful and
we look forward to continued work with our remarkable designers.
The bonds of friendship formed at our monthly Cafe Europa gatherings for Holocaust survivors go far beyond the walls of the meetings. This month, survivor Toby
Back hosted a brunch to honor the kindness and dedication of Cafe Europa
Coordinator, Georgia Kass. We are so in awe of the incredible people we work with and become friends with every day!
