Date Wed, Dec 16, 8:30am - 9:00am
Duration   30m

In 1944, 12-year-old Steven Fenves and his family were forced from their home in Subotica, Yugoslavia, into a Jewish ghetto. While neighbors turned against them and looted their home, their former cook, Maris, rescued their treasured family artwork and recipes. These cherished items offer a glimpse into one family’s life before it was shattered by the Holocaust. Join Steven, a Holocaust survivor and Museum volunteer, James Beard Award–winning Chef Alon Shaya, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum for a conversation about family recipes and their connections to childhood memories and Holocaust history.
