Survivor Presentations

Every second Sunday of the month at 12:30 pm, the public has the unique opportunity to hear a Holocaust survivor tell their story and answer questions. On July 12, Sharon Pitluk Silver will share her story.

In November 1942, Sharon’s parents were killed and she was taken into hiding by a young Catholic couple and lived with them for three years. In May 1945, Sharon’s uncle, the only Survivor of the family, came to retrieve her from the couple. They refused to give Sharon up, forcing her uncle to come back during the night and steal her away from them. Sharon’s uncle took her to a displaced person’s camp, and after searching unsuccessfully for any other surviving relatives, he and Sharon left for the United States.

Free with Museum admission.
