Location Facebook Live
Date Fri, Feb 12, 8:30am - 9:00am
Duration   30m

Sam and Regina Spiegel found love in the most unlikely of places—at a forced labor camp in German-occupied Poland. For Gad Beck and Manfred Lewin, their affection put the young Jewish men at a greater risk, so they kept their forbidden relationship a secret. Even in the darkest hours of the Holocaust, love gave many a reason to hope for a better future, the will to survive, and inspiration to rebuild after the war.

Join United States Holocaust Memorial Museum historians on Facebook Live to learn how love became an act of resistance for people persecuted by the Nazi regime.
