CANDLES Holocaust Museum

September 23, 2017

Be the Change Series

Keynote speaker: Magda Brown

On her 17th birthday, Magda and her family were crammed into a box car and forced to endure an arduous journey to Auschwitz-Birkenau. After two months of torture, she was selected to be sent to a work camp. In March 1945, she and her group were forced to go on a death march to Buchenwald, but she and several prisoners managed to escape and hide in a barn where they were found by American soldiers. We welcome you to hear the story of the Holocaust through the eyes of a persevering teenager. This program is made possible in part by support from the Spungen Family Foundation.
