Advance reservations are required as seating is limited.

We invite you to join us September 13 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm for a presentation of “Holocaust Survivors of Lawrence County: Stories of Resilience and Rebuilding.”

Learn about three Holocaust survivors who immigrated to and settled in Lawrence County; how these survivors started families, owned and operated businesses, served as faith leaders and pillars of their communities, and truly became a part of the fabric of the New Castle area. Although each survivor suffered unfathomable loss and trauma, their stories show their own resilience and the endurance of the human spirit.

By learning their stories, we all can do our part to “never forget” as we honor their lives and memories.

Event presenter: Christina Sahovey, Operations Manager of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh, where she has worked since 2016. In this education presentation, she shares her knowledge and research of the Holocaust.

    RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Payment can be made at the event.
