June 8, 2022—HHREC Memory Keepers GenerationsForward Story Hour

Our Memory Keepers Story Hour series will continue on Wednesday, June 8th at 7pm on Zoom, as we host Joseph Kaidanow from our HHREC GenerationsForward Speakers Bureau.

Joseph’s parents, Ellen and Jerry, are both Holocaust survivors. Joseph will share his father’s story. Jerry was born near the town of Krivitchi, Poland in what is now Belarus. His story involves the struggle to survive after his parents perished during an “action” in the town as his remaining family fled to the woods of the Naroch forest and eventually immigrated to the U.S., settling in the Bronx.

Joseph and his wife Ellen actively support the mission of the Holocaust & Human Rights Center, as Joseph is the Immediate Past Chairperson who currently serves on the HHREC Board of Directors, and Ellen is a member of the HHREC Memory Keepers GenerationsForward Speakers Bureau.

These stories offer a unique opportunity to hear from a very special group of Survivors and next generation family members about the consequences of hate, and the power of hope, as they help people reflect and realize that their choices matter, and that one person can make a difference.

We are eternally grateful for the contributions from the courageous men and women who share their stories of survival from the Holocaust, and to their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren who continue to pass them on.
