On Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Ed Burzminski and his daughter Mia shared the story of Stefania, Helena and Max at Temple Sinai in Glendale, CA. It was a new experience for the Temple to have a speaker share a Holocaust story from a rescuer’s perspective.
Among the attendees were some family members of Holocaust survivors and students of the STARS religious school within the synagogue. Prior to the presentation, Rabbi held a service remembering those who perished during the Holocaust, and also speaking out against continuing anti-Semitism worldwide. Questions from the audience expressed curiosity and a genuine desire to know more. Gratitude to Kim Selfon for making the connection and many thanks to leadership at Temple Sinai for arranging this presentation.
