HHREC Memory Keepers GenerationsForward Story Hour

Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center Memory Keepers GenerationsForward Speaker – Yuval Ehrenreich

Please join the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center on December 15 at 7 p.m. from the comfort and safety of your own home to hear Yuval Ehrenreich tell his father’s incredible story of survival.

At the age of 7, his father witnessed the burning of his family’s synagogue in Cologne, Germany set on fire by the Nazis on the night of Kristallnacht. Weeks later, he crossed the boarder alone in a unique Kindertransport to Belgium. He was arrested near Brussels by the Gestapo at the age of 10. He was recused hours before his train was to depart for Auschwitz. Later, at age 11, he was hidden by the Jewish resistance with a false identity in a Catholic home for boys and miraculously survived a raid by a platoon of Nazi soldiers, who surrounded the home so no one could escape. He was “hidden” in plain sight with 86 other children during inspection. The unwavering Christian faith of a woman risked all to save them.

Yuval tells how his father survived and grew up to rebuild all lost and give his family the good life they enjoy today. He concludes with the recounting of Pope Benedict’s visit in 2005 on World Youth Day to his father’s synagogue that was rebuilt after the war.

Yuval was born in Israel and came to the United States when he was 9 months. Old. He lives in Tarrytown.
