Join the Harrison Public Library and Jewish Community Center of Harrison for a virtual Holocaust Remembrance program with Shelley Greenspan. She is the only child of two Holocaust survivors who came from Northern Transylvania, in present-day Romania. Shelley tells the story of her mother, Lilly, who survived two concentration camps thanks to the love and support of her older sister, Sarah, who was with her throughout the war. Shelley and her daughter, Emily had the opportunity to visit Romania in May 2019 through Tarbut Foundation Sighet to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the deportation of Jews from Transylvania. While there, they traveled to the village of Borsato to see Lilly's childhood home, which is now a post office. Shelley's younger daughter, Naomi, is the image of her grandmother Lilly.

Shelley is a member of GenerationsForward, a group of second and third-generation individuals sponsored by the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center of White Plains, New York.

Registration is required for this online program.

This talk will be recorded and posted on the library's YouTube channel.
