Henry Kronberg Remembers | A Story of the Warsaw Ghetto Remembrance Garden

Facebooktwitter Share this with your Friends!

This is a rare and unique opportunity to hear from one of the remaining few survivors of the Holocaust. Henry Kronberg, 98 and resident of Las Vegas, will return to Stillpoint to share a video about him and the Warsaw Ghetto Remembrance Garden at nearby Temple Beth Shalom.

Henry was 19 years old when the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939.  During the next 6 years he endured the Krakow ghettos, labor camps, and a concentration camp.  In 1947, a couple years after liberation from the Nazis, Henry and his wife moved to New Jersey.

Join us as we watch the short video “A Place of Hope:  The Story of the Warsaw Ghetto Remembrance,” featuring Henry Kronberg and Ben Lesser, another Holocaust survivor.  In the hour following the video Henry will answer questions from the audience and tell the story that, as he says, “ I don’t like to speak about or remember, but it’s a story that must be told.”
