On September 6, 2017, an annual celebratory luncheon was held to honor Holocaust survivors and their sons and daughters. The event was hosted by Irving Roth, Director and Curator of the Holocaust Resource Center and was held in the magnificent newly-renovated ballroom.
Through the years, this group of survivors have provided an invaluable service to the community, leading discussions and answering questions for school groups and groups of adults who come to visit the Holocaust Resource Center. They are a lively group, interested in telling their stories, reminding people of the Holocaust and its attendant horrors. The people who are active in this endeavor are in their 80’s and 90’s.
Their sons and daughters who attended the event are exceptionally proud of their parents and were pleased that they were able to celebrate with them.
As Irving Roth stated, “This Group is the basis for the Holocaust Resource Center!”
