Holocaust Stories of Resistance and Rebirth

Date and Time: December 1, 2022, 6:30 PM CT

Location: Tonganoxie Public Library, 217 E 4th St, Tonganoxie
(view on google maps)

Meet two courageous men who fought to survive the horrors of the Holocaust and build new lives of hope in Kansas. Teenagers Lou Frydman, a Holocaust survivor, and Jarek Piekalkiewicz, a Polish resistance fighter, both defied daunting odds and lost everything dear to them. Despite their personal tragedies, each summoned bravery to build a new life in Kansas. How does one make a life in a new land? Their stories, shared through the broad history of the Holocaust, World War II, and the rise of Hitler, demonstrate their valor and hope in finding new meaning to life. This presentation is based on the book Needle in the Bone authored by presenter Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg.
