Surviving Against the Odds: A Journey of Resilience and Remembrance

Event Description

Join BZD for a poignant virtual event commemorating Yom Hashoah as we hear the remarkable story of survival from Holocaust Survivor, Fred Schoenfeld, born in 1936 in Kosice, Czechoslovakia. Despite the tumultuous backdrop of World War II, Fred’s family navigated the perils of persecution and displacement, finding refuge in the Tatra mountains until liberation in 1945. Delve into Fred’s experiences as he shares firsthand accounts of resilience and perseverance amidst unimaginable adversity. From narrow escapes to moments of solidarity, his narrative illuminates the indomitable human spirit and serves as a testament to the enduring power of remembrance. This event, held on Tuesday, May 7th at 11 AM EDT, offers a profound opportunity to honor the memory of those lost and reaffirm our commitment to never forget. Join us for a morning of reflection and hope. A Q&A with Fred will follow our program.
