Caring for Children Who Were Abandoned by the World
|Date||Wed, Dec 8, 8:30am - 9:00am|
It appears to be an idyllic holiday moment: two children gaze at a Christmas tree. In fact, the children are Jewish, and the photograph helped save their lives during the Holocaust. As we approach end-of-year holiday celebrations, we remember those who gave the greatest gift of all: refuge in a time of need. Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum live on Facebook to hear several stories: In one, a Muslim family, under the cover of darkness, finds shelter for a fleeing Jewish family. In another, after the war, a German Jewish refugee creates a sanctuary for dozens of children after losing most of her own family in the Holocaust.
Watch live on Facebook. You do not need a Facebook account to view USHMM's program. After the live broadcast, the recording will be available to watch on demand on the Museum’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
