Shedding our Stars: Holocaust Survivor Laureen Nussbaum Shares Her Story

April 16 • 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


In honor of Yom Hashoah, the SJCC is partnering with the Holocaust Center for Humanity for a series of meaningful events. Hear from speaker Laureen Nussbaum, a German native whose family fled to Amsterdam when the Nazis seized power. Through a loophole and a supportive German official, Laureen was re-classified as non-Jewish, giving her the ability to help support other Jewish people, including her future husband, Rudi.   

While there, you can also explore the Holocaust Center’s new temporary exhibit, “Memories Unboxed: Rare Photos From Our Archives.” which includes a photo of Nussbaum.  

This event and access to the museum are free with a suggested donation between $5-10. Space is limited and reservations are recommended. Program and exhibit are recommended for grade 6 and up.
