Galloway, Twp., NJ – An informal evening program is being offered by The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey for second and third generation family members of Holocaust survivors.

 

The program will take place on Saturday evening, December 4th at 7:30 PM at Beth El Synagogue's Library located at 500 North Jerome Ave. in Margate.  It is sponsored by Stockton's Holocaust Resource Center and Jewish Family Service of Atlantic and Cape May Counties.

 

The featured speaker for the event will be Dr. Yehuda Bauer who is a well known Holocaust scholar and historian from Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel.

 

Dr. Bauer will share with the second and third generation group the rich heritage and history of their families.  They will be able to ask Dr. Bauer questions about his research as well as any other area of interest in the field of Holocaust and Genocide Studies.  Dr. Bauer says:  “Let me tell you a story.”  As he explains, “it is not enough to know the dates and facts of an event.  We must know the stories of individuals and where they came from in Eastern Europe.”
