Hedy Epstein, a survivor of the Holocaust at the age of fifteen (in which she lost both her parents), will describe her experiences during the Holocaust and will describe how that experience made her committed to fighting injustice for the rest of her life. She will describe how the situation on the ground in Palestine today very much resembles the situation in Nazi Germany in 1939 and will compare the egregious violations of human rights that are taking place in Palestine today as a result of the Israeli occupation to the Holocaust.
"Hedy Epstein is a dynamic and engaging speaker. Her story and message penetrates the depth of our feeling and cause us to confront our own 'bystander behaviors.'"
~ Rabbi Robert Sternberg, Executive Director, St. Louis Holocaust Museum and Learning Center
