The Breman Jewish Heritage Museum’s popular Bearing Witness speaker series returns for 2015-16 on Sunday, Nov. 15, and again, thanks to a grant from the Sara Giles Moore Foundation, admission is free.
The Sara Giles Moore Foundation, which is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in the Atlanta area and is based just a few blocks from the Breman in Midtown, also made admission free in 2014-15. The Breman, inside the Selig Center at 1440 Spring St., learned of the renewed grant in early November.
Six Holocaust survivors are scheduled to speak during the series, with each session taking place on a Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.
The first speaker is Eva Friedlander on Nov. 15. A Hungarian Jew, Friedlander survived World War II by dying her hair and pretending to be a Christian in Budapest.
The others in the series:
- Norbert Friedman of Poland, Dec. 13.
- Paula Gris of Romania, Jan. 17.
- Mariella Crea of France, Feb. 21.
- Henry Birnbrey of Germany, March 20.
- Hershel Greenblat of Ukraine, April 17.
Guided tours of the Breman’s Holocaust Gallery are available from noon to 2 p.m. the day of each program. The Bearing Witness speakers filled the Breman auditorium for each of the 2014-15 sessions.
