DETAILS JCC-Chabad of Downtown Los Angeles is hosting Eva Schloss, who will share her story of tolerance, diversity and triumph in an interview with Erin Gruwell, an educator focused on tolerance who inspired the film Freedom Writers. David Suissa, Editor in Chief of the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, will serve as MC.
In 1938, Germany invaded Austria, causing many Jewish families to flee Austria to avoid persecution. Among the emigrants was 8-year old Eva Geiringer, who with her mother, brother, and father moved first to Belgium and then to Holland, where one of her neighbors and playmates was Anne Frank. In July of 1942, both girls and their families went into hiding in Holland, after some time both families were betrayed, captured and sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Eva and her mother survived, but her brother and father did not. Eva’s mother married Otto Frank, the father of Anne Frank, and Eva attended university, got married and had children.
After remaining silent about her experiences for 40 years, Eva began to share her story to promote tolerance and Holocaust education around the world. She has written three books, inspired a popular play, and recounted her experiences at more than 1,000 speaking engagements.
