3GNY Stories Live: WEDU Wednesdays
|Date||Wed, Mar 3, 7:00pm - 8:00pm|
Alyssa will focus on the story of her grandmother, Stefi
Greengrass. Stefi was born and raised in Hungary where she lived a
relatively normal and happy life. When she was 26 years old, Stefi and
her family were taken by the Nazis when they invaded Hungary as a part
of the Final Solution. Stefi survived numerous concentration camps
including Auschwitz II- Birkenau, Mauthausen, Gross Rosen and
Bergen-Belsen where she was ultimately liberated.
She currently serves as chair of the Young Friends at the Museum of Jewish Heritage and volunteers with 3GNY. Through their educational training program WEDU, she has taught her grandparents stories to students in numerous schools throughout New York City.
Professionally, Alyssa works as a senior leadership giving officer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center raising critical money for their cancer research and patient care initiatives. She earned her undergraduate degree from Rutgers University and holds a Masters degree from Manhattan School of Music.
