A Menorah That Honors an Immigrant's Story

"Hanukkah... and the Statue of Liberty... are separated by two millennia and thousands of miles, but Manfred Anson thought it perfectly appropriate to bring them together."

Anson's "Liberty Menorah" is one of our favorite objects in the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust collection.

Join us at Light Up the Night 2019 to celebrate the Museum and its critical work during the festival of lights.

After escaping the Holocaust, Manfred Anson paid tribute to his new home.

Check out this interesting and timely seminar on Sunday. A rare opportunity to hear from passengers who were on the St. Louis in 1939, a ship of Jewish refugees turned away from the United States. http://bit.ly/2jrj78S

In 1939, the S.S. St. Louis was bound for Cuba with hundreds of Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany on board. The passengers were turned away first from Havana, then from the United States, and subsequently forced to return to Europe during Hitler’s reign.
In response to current events, the Museum invites you to attend our free seminar “The Voyage of the St. Louis,” this Sunday, February 5, from 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM. Two former passengers of the St. Louis will join Scott Miller, Cultural Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, for a discussion that includes the painstaking research into discovering the fate of all the passengers on this notorious voyage.

Space is limited and advance registration is required.

Friends, I would be honored if you would consider reading the story of my parents in the Holocaust. As Hungarian Jews, they survived concentration camps, death marches, ghettos... and arrived in Canada as refugees seeking sanctuary. My debut book, THE CRATE: A Story of War, a Murder and Justice launches today. It recounts the horrors my parents endured, woven together with a grisly true crime that rocked my family... and dredged up terrible memories. I think it is IMPERATIVE that we preserve the history of the Shoah. The voices of denial are loud. Fewer and fewer survivors remain to tell their stories. I feel it is incumbent upon the second generation to tell the world what happened.
