Beth El Author Series presents
World renowned Holocaust historian and professor Peter Hayes
Sunday, March 11, 2018 11:00am at the Levin Jewish Community Center
Join us as we hear from Peter Hayes, author of "Why? Explaining the Holocaust," a book that responds to the questions

to bear on conventional, popular views of the history, challenging some of the most prominent recent interpretations.
Books will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments will be served.

A Historic Evening with Eva Schloss Stepsister of Anne Frank
March 5, 2018 7pm - Page Auditorium at Duke University, 402 Chapel Dr, Durham
Enter the world of Anne Frank as told by her stepsister and childhood friend, Eva Schloss.
Playing hopscotch and drinking lemonade together, both girls would never have imagined where life would lead them.
Eva survived the horrors of the Holocaust and the horrific conditions in Auschwitz, while Anne sadly perished.
Of the remaining survivors, Eva is the last witness to Anne Frank's incredibly short yet powerful life.
Eva has recounted her and Anne’s wartime experiences in more than one thousand speaking engagements.
She has written two books and has had a play written about her life.
In 1999 Eva signed the Anne Frank Peace Declaration along with United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan.

A Big Wig Production is proud to collaborate with the Jewish Federation of Durham/Chapel Hill to present Joshua Harmon's biting comedy "BAD JEWS." Bad Jews tells the story of three millennial, Jewish cousins who converge in a NYC apartment after the funeral of their "Poppy," a survivor of the Holocaust. This dark comedy explores how we, as humans, struggle to find our identity, our faith, our belonging, how to relate to our family and how we respect and remember our elders. You will laugh, and you will leave with a very poignant message that will keep you talking for days and weeks to come.
Ticket sale proceeds from the February 11th evening performance will go to the Holocaust Speaker's Bureau.
