Please join us for a service of remembrance and to honor local Holocaust survivors and their families followed by the program: “Postcards from Europe’s Edge” presented by Professor Amos Bitzan, Frances and Laurence Weinstein Assistant Professor of History, on the writings of Sara Spira.

Sara Spira sent postcards from Nazi-occupied Poland to her daughter and son-in-law, who had emigrated from Nazi Germany to Racine, WI. The postcards reveal the cruel world in which she lived, solely because she was Jewish.
