Local Holocaust survivors discuss memories of Kristallnacht


On Sunday, Oct.27, a panel of four local Holocaust survivors—Sonja Marchesano, Sylvia Rapp, Eva Ritt and Harry Lowenstein—will share their memories of Kristallnacht at a special program at the Holocaust Center, 851 N. Maitland Avenue. They will talk about their experiences on the night of Nov. 9, 1938, that began Hitler’s Final Solution. They will also discuss how they survived the war.

The panel will be moderated by Professor Richard Gair of Valencia College. The program, which starts at 2 p.m., is free and open to the public. Free parking is available on site, and the building is fully handicap accessible.

 This event is being held as part of Central Florida’s Commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of Kristallnacht—the beginning of Hitler’s Final Solution. A remarkable group of arts and cultural organizations are hosting a series of events to promote respect and diversity in our society, and to empower our community to speak out against injustice. More information about the community-wide collaboration is online at Kristallnacht2013.org. For information about other programs at the Holocaust Center call 407-628-0555.
