Conversation with a Survivor

December 5, 2018 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

November 9, 2018 marked the 80th anniversary of the November Pogrom known as Kristallnacht when Nazi thugs went through the streets of Germany and set synagogues on fire, smashed the window fronts of Jewish businesses, attacked Jewish people and vandalized their apartments. Holocaust Survivor Ruth Steinfeld experienced the November Pogrom firsthand. Ruth and her sister Lea lived in Sinsheim, Germany when Hitler came to power. The family was deported to the Gurs internment camp in 1940, and their mother was faced with a very difficult decision: let a Jewish philanthropic organization called Oeuvres de Secours aux Enfants (OSE) take her daughters to safety, or keep them with her. Ruth and her sister's lives were forever altered after that moment.
