3GNY Stories Live: WEDU Wednesdays featuring Yoni Litwok
|Date||Wed, Nov 11, 7:00pm - 8:00pm|
In 2018, Yoni discovered testimony his grandfather, Zygmunt (Ziggy) Litwok, a Holocaust survivor, had provided to the Shoah Foundation. Ziggy described that after the Nazis invaded his hometown of Dziedzice, Poland, the Jews were notified that the synagogue would be destroyed. Late that night, they snuck into the synagogue, took the Torah scrolls to the local Jewish cemetery, and hid them.
Ziggy wanted to go back and recover the hidden Torah scrolls. However, he did not have the opportunity prior to his sudden passing in 2002. After hearing this story, Yoni embarked on a journey to see if he could trace his Papa’s roots and find the hidden Torah. Through a series of improbable events and remarkable people, Yoni found himself in Poland, learning more about his family than he could have ever imagined.
Join Yoni Litwok as he takes you on "The Quest for a Hidden Torah" -- a story of incredible perseverance and revelation.
3GNY Stories Live: WEDU Wednesdays take place every other Wednesday at 8:00 pm ET. In this virtual series, grandchildren of Holocaust survivors share their family stories with us. You'll also learn more about their educational initiative, WEDU, which trains 3Gs to learn and share their family stories in school classrooms. View past WEDU Wednesday speaker presentations on their YouTube channel.
