7:40 PM Presentation by Heather Brubaker
Heather Brubaker is the granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor, Hilde Goldberg, of blessed memory, and a long-time high school teacher. In 2022, Heather was honored to be invited to join the Teacher Advisory Board that worked to create the Auschwitz Legacy Fellowship, a fully-funded learning and travel experience for high school teachers from across the USA. After the service she will share thoughts from her work with the team designing the Fellowship and also her experience traveling with the inaugural group of Fellows to Poland and The Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. On that trip, for the first time, she traced the path of her great-grandparents’ arrival and death at Birkenau.
Due to the subject matter of this presentation, it is recommended for ages 12 and up.
Support for this event provided by a grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
