An Evening with Michelle Glied-Goldstein – Mon. Dec. 10th (6:30-8:30pm)

SJAM is thrilled to announce a special event:

Holocaust Testimony from Generation to Generation With Michelle Glied-Goldstein
Wednesday, Dec. 10th, 6:30-8:30pm (SJAM Auditorium)

Join us for a night of learning about the power of hope in the midst of hatred.  Michelle Glied-Goldstein will present the personal history of her father, Holocaust Survivor Bill Glied, through her new initiative, Holocaust Testimony from Generation to Generation.  Her father Bill passed away in February of this year.  Before his death Bill actively told his personal history to students, educators and adults around the globe, visiting our Region and SJAM often.

Bill was concerned about how survivors’ histories would continue to be told in a meaningful way when they would no longer be able to tell them themselves.  Prior to his death, Michelle captured interviews with her father on film and has put together a meaningful and powerful sharing of Bill’s testimony.

You are welcome to invite others to join in this evening of learning and of standing together against hatred and discrimination

Please RSVP to jeff_chard@wrdsb.ca if you’d like to attend.
