NJ Yom HaShoah commemoration
DR. AGNES GRUNWALD-SPIER joins the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education (Chhange) for the state’s commemoration of Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, on Friday, May 3. Grunwald-Spier and her mother survived the Holocaust living in the Budapest ghetto. Her book “Women’s Experiences in the Holocaust: In their Own Words” (Amberley Publishing, 2018), explores the challenges faced by women during the Holocaust including pregnancy, abortion, caring for family, sexual abuse, and medical experimentation.
This commemorative program will also include a candle-lighting ceremony featuring local Holocaust survivors escorted by sailors from Naval Weapons Station Earle and a musical performance by the Marlboro High School Choir.
Copies of “Women’s Experiences in the Holocaust: In their Own Words” will be available for purchase and signing after the event.
The free program will take place at 9:30 a.m. in the Navesink Rooms
in the Warner Student Life Center at Brookdale Community College, Lincroft. Advance registration recommended. Visit chhange.org or call
