Oct. 24 Historic Gathering To Mark 80 Years Since Kristallnacht
OCEANSIDE, New York — Eva Schloss, the stepsister and childhood friend of Anne Frank, will be speaking at 7:30 p.m. on October 24 at Oceanside Middle School, 186 Alice Ave. in Oceanside.
Her compelling story of surviving the holocaust, rebuilding her life and establishing herself as an internationally respected humanitarian is gripping and enheartening. The gathering will be suitable for teenagers and adults of all faiths.
This past year, a documentary by The New York Times depicting Mrs. Schloss partaking in a virtual Holocaust testimonial project, was among 10 contenders for the documentary short subject category at the 90th Academy Awards.
“We are honored and excited to host to this great person,” said Rabbi Levi Gurkov, co-director of Chabad of Oceanside, the organization sponsoring the event. “Each and every survivor has a story to be told. Eva's story is one of courage, perseverance and standing up for what is right, something we can all learn from her.”
The visit brings added significance as this year marks 80 years since Kristallnacht.
Tickets are $25 for general admission, $45 for preferred seating (VIP reception with Eva Schloss and sponsorship opportunities are available as well). For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.ChabadOfOceanside.com/historicevening
