Kara Driscoll, Holocaust & Humanity Center, (513) 638-0508, KDRISCOLL@CINCYHHC.ORG
Following the news of the passing of one of the community’s strongest advocates, Richard Weiland, z”l, the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center is postponing our January 29th Holocaust Remembrance Day program with Zahava Rendler.
Our organization will instead take this time to remember his remarkable legacy. Weiland was a long-time advocate for the Center who worked tirelessly during its foundational years to help establish it as an independent organization. He led the effort to secure significant public funding for the organization, which still fuels our mission, enabling us to educate and inspire even today.
The program originally scheduled for January 29th will now be held on February 19, at 12:30 p.m. at historic Union Terminal.
In commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Holocaust survivor Zahava Rendler will share her story in front of hundreds of Cincinnatians at historic Union Terminal on February 19. The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center will host a special conversation with Holocaust survivor Zahava Rendler in Reakirt Auditorium. In commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the museum’s fourth anniversary at Union Terminal, the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center welcomes the public to hear from educator and Cincinnatian Zahava Rendler in conversation with Jackie Congedo, Chief Community Engagement & External Relations Officer.
Rendler was born Golda Feuerberg in Stryi, Poland on March 30, 1941. Rendler and her family hid in an underground bunker until her parents decided it was too dangerous and sent her to live with a Polish woman. The woman, fearing she would be discovered, placed Rendler in a convent where she survived and was found by her father.
Rendler will share her story and lessons and discuss her views on the recent rise in antisemitism and what we can do to fight hate and prejudice. Those who would like to register CAN DO SO ONLINE.
