Keynote speaker: Ellie Merar – From Antisemitism to Terre Haute
Ellie Merar was born in 1926 in Lauterecken, Germany. In 1933 the Nazis published an anti-Semitic article in the local paper degrading the Loeb’s retail store. At the age of eleven, Ellie and her family escaped the ever-growing anti-Semitism in Germany. They were sponsored by an American Aunt and Uncle living in Terre Haute, Indiana. Join us as Ellie shares her personal story of anti-Semitic persecution and immigration to the United States.This program is made possible in part by support from the Spungen Family Foundation.
