Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center GenerationsForward Memory Keepers Series: Julie Sherman To Speak

Please join the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center on January 19th at 7 p.m. from the comfort of your home to hear Julie Sherman tell her mother’s incredible Holocaust story.

Julie will show how “upstanders”, ordinary people, Jews, non-Jews, and even Nazis helped her mother’s family survive. Theirs is a story of miracles, but also loss and trauma, the lingering effects of their experiences, and what it was like growing up as a child of a survivor.

Julie’s mother, Helen Sherman, born Chaya Scharfer, was one of eight children born to a Hasidic German family. The family lived in Danzig, which is now Gdansk, Poland. They owned the largest Kosher hotel on the Baltic Sea. Through connections and luck, family members found refuge in Palestine, Japan, England and the United States. Julie’s mother and her sister were sent on a Kindertransport to England. They lived with relatives, who mistreated them, and were later moved to an orphanage.
