[ADVERTORIAL – PHOTOS] Remembering Churban Europe in the 9 Days In the midst of our mourning period for the Churban Habayis. Lakewood’s Learn and Network will present a special “Zichron Churban Europe” evening to focus on our People’s most recent period of devastation.
On Wednesday, 6 Av (July 25th), at Bais Shaindel High School, Lakewood will hear live testimonials from two of the few remaining survivors of that precarious period.
Holocaust Survivor George Topas, author of the popular Holocaust book, The Iron Furnace:
Mr. Topas will talk of some of his gripping experiences escaping six labor camps, including the infamous Majdanek camp.
Another speaker featured is Anthony Morrone, a New Jersey resident of Italian-American descent, will relate some of his experiences as an American troop who helped liberate the Buchenwald concentration camp. Mr. Morrone has spoken of the “unbelievable sight” throughout his life and recently held an emotional reunion with one of the men he liberated, noted survivor and author Elie Wiesel.
