Online & On-Site Program: From Generation to Generation – Descendants of Survivors and Perpetrators
Join 3G Chicago for a compelling conversation between two descendants of Holocaust Survivors and the descendant of a perpetrator who was responsible for the deaths of thousands of Jews. This rare opportunity to hear from people whose family histories were directly impacted by the Holocaust offers a unique perspective on how individuals from different backgrounds can come together to combat hatred. Panelists will include:
Silvia Foti, the granddaughter of a Lithuanian perpetrator responsible for the deaths of thousands of Jews. Despite previously being honored as a Lithuanian war hero, Silvia uncovered the truth about her grandfather’s actions, spoke out against his crimes, and continues to share her story in hopes of preventing future genocides from occurring.
Howard Jeruchimowicz, the grandchild of Lithuanian Jews who survived the horrors of the Holocaust in the Vilna ghetto. Howard’s grandparents were the only members of their family to survive.
Carol Kain, the daughter of Holocaust Survivors of both Lithuanian and German descent. All Lithuanian family members, except for one uncle, were murdered by Nazis.
Free to the public. Reservations required.
