Yom HaShoah Service, April 21

In April, a special exhibit is being designed for the Holocaust Resource Center in observance of Yom HaShoah. This exhibit will run for several months. The event is a history of a Holocaust survivor, Hannah Kroner, who left a very personal legacy of the history of her family and friends.  

Hannah Kroner, who recently passed away, immigrated to America from Berlin in 1939.  She danced professionally in Europe and America and opened her dance studio, Hannah Kroner School of Dance in 1947, which currently resides in Albertson, NY.  Her life story and legacy will be depicted through pictures and narratives.  A biography of her life, “No Matter What, We Keep Dancing”, will be available for purchase.  More information on Hannah Kroner ‘s life , is available  on The Hannah Kroner Legacy Foundation.

This exhibit is being prepared by Mrs. Kroner’s daughter, Evelyn Summer, with Irving Roth, Director and Curator of the Center. The introduction to the exhibit will be made by Rabbi Chizner at Shabbat services, Friday evening, April 21 at 7:30 pm in the Holocaust Resource Center.  

Shabbat services will continue at 8:00 p.m. The official inauguration of the exhibit will take place on Sunday afternoon at 3PM, April 23 with a special reception. Members, family and the public are invited.  Please contact our Office at 516-621-8049 if you are planning to attend the exhibit opening, or see the exhibit, over the next few months.
