Survivors Week #4
February 20, 2020 - February 26, 2020
The Spungen Foundation, since the summer of 2013, has given scholarships to graduating seniors from Billings (Montana) West High School for going to Auschwitz with Eva Kor (CANDLES Holocaust Museum, Terre Haute IN).
In the spring of 2017, Billings students unable to go to Poland used their spring break time to come to Illinois for an in-depth “Survivors Week.” The students and teacher (Rob Stanton) visit Baha’i Temple, CANDLES, and Illinois Holocaust Museum.
When in Lincolnshire for lunches/dinners, Holocaust and other Genocide related speakers will tell their personal stories. The Spungen’s will also host students from Carmel Catholic High School, docents from the Illinois Holocaust Museum and other special guests.
For 2020, their 4th year, the Spungen Foundation will partner with the Steans Family Foundation (North Chicago) and A.J. Katzenmaier Academy in hosting events for Inge Auerbacher. A special excursion for 2020 is a visit to the neighborhood of “Milwaukee 53206” and students will be interviewed on WGLB 96.1 FM (1560 AM).
