Holocaust Survivor Testimony: Dr. Avrum Bichler

This week we share the Oral History of Dr. Avrum Bichler who was born in Poland in 1933. He escaped with his family to Russia, where they were forced to work as slave laborers near the Arctic Circle, in Siberia, and in Kazakhstan.

After the war ended the Bichler family attempted to return to their home in Poland, only to learn of the horrors they had left behind. Avrum eventually made his way to America where he attended Yeshiva University and received assistance from the JDC.

Avrum ends by telling us to never give up hope and to draw strength from one’s past.

Auschwitz Exhibition

We're honored to have three of our most powerful artifacts featured in Auschwitz Exhibition's exhibit at Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.

Have you been to see the new exhibit yet?

During the Holocaust, millions of Jews faced struggles in the context of their faith-based practices and beliefs.

Learn more about how these struggles show us a different way to frame and understand the persistence of Jewish resilience in Auschwitz, trough our website's new article: "Resilience and Hope in Auschwitz. Not Long Ago. Not far Away".

A moving article by Amud Aish Memorial Museum and Kleinman Holocaust Education Center, one of the loaning institutions that have lent part of their personal collections to be shown during the stay of the exhibition in New York City.

Check out this powerful prayer that was shared by Elad Nehorai. The heartbreaking choices that Jews made and the constant grappling with faith even in the worst of times is always so moving to think about.

Chaskel Bennet shared:

"I have a copy of this prayer & read it aloud to my children right before we sing Vhi Sheomda. We talk about the pain, the perseverance, the hopes & aspirations of our history. We talk about our grandparents heroic survival & the obligation to pay their legacy forward.This is us."

May we all merit to never have to make such choices again and usher in the coming of Moshiach, soon in our days.

“Amazing. A prayer by and for Jews in concentration camps to be said before eating bread on Passover (to explain to God why they were eating leavened bread instead of matzah). This copy was found in Bergen Belsen. ht /r/Judaism”

Hi there, I am reaching out on behalf of the documentary Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz. Prosecuting Evil tells the incredible story of Ben Ferencz, the last surviving Nuremberg Trial prosecutor, who continues to wage his lifelong crusade in the fight for law and peace. Few people today have heard of Ben Ferencz. But this portrait of a 98-year-old lawyer, couldn't be more relevant. Racism, antisemitism, and the return of extremist political views is a danger in 2019. Prosecuting Evil is now available on Netflix in the US and I encourage you all to watch it! If you have any questions about the film, please do not hesitate to reach out ([email protected]) All the best,
