2022 First Person Series: Louise Lawrence-Israëls
|Date||Wed, Jun 22, 12:00pm - 1:00pm|
Louise Lawrence-Israëls was afraid to go outside. She had been hiding in an attic for two and a half years, since she was six months old, with her parents, brother, and a family friend. Though her family tried to have a normal life, Louise never went out, never knew sunshine or fresh air. “They never talked about the outside world,” she said.
Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to learn how, when Canadian forces liberated Amsterdam in May 1945, Louise overcame her fear and emerged into a world she didn’t know.
First Person is a monthly hour-long discussion with a Holocaust survivor and is made possible through generous support from the Louis Franklin Smith Foundation, with additional funding from the Arlene and Daniel Fisher Foundation.
