Ludwig Wurzelmann, born in 1926 in Warsaw, became one of the few Polish Jews to survive World War II and the Shoah. His dramatic story--of growing up in Poland, being confined in the Wlodowa Ghetto, fighting as a partisan in the Parczew Forest--will be shared with us by his son, Dr. John Wurzelmann, a retired physician who lives in Chapel Hill.
In addition to Dr. Wurzelmann’s talk, this year’s commemoration will feature candle lighting, along with music by the Triangle Jewish Chorale and other local artists. Rabbi Daniel Greyber of Beth El Synagogue will chant El Male Rachamim and lead the Mourner’s Kaddish.
Please note: The 2023 commemoration will take place in-person only. It will not be available on Zoom.
Admission is free, and all are welcome.For more information, contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Join us at Beth El Synagogue (Durham, NC) on May 16 at 7pm (link to join online forthcoming) to hear Dr. Edward Halperin discuss the story including recent revelations.
On May 25, 2014 a funeral took place at the Durham Hebrew Cemetery, attended by several hundred community members and presided over by Rabbis Greyber and Feldman, for the burial of ashes from the Dachau Concentration Camp crematoria. The presence of human remains in the ashes was confirmed by laboratory tests at the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office. Nine years later additional research shows the story of the “Durham ashes” is more complex and more sinister than originally described.
This program is co-sponsored by Beth El Synagogue and The Center for Holocaust, Genocide, and
Human Rights Education of North Carolina.
Junior Internship Program
July 9-14, 2023
All students who live in the United States and are entering grades 8-12 in the 2023-2024 school year are encouraged to apply.
This week-long residential program aims to challenge participants to deeply consider what it means to be a responsible participant in civil society and to be stronger than hate. The workshop sessions and activities are intended to develop knowledge, skills and confidence to create positive change in the lives of participants and in their communities.
Participants will stay on the University of Southern California campus in a college dorm for five (5) nights. If accepted into the program, all expenses including room, board and travel will be covered by the program.
First Person is a monthly (select Wednesdays at 1pmET) hour-long discussion featuring a live interview between journalist Bill Benson and a survivor and including questions from the audience, available on the Museum’s YouTube channel. It is made possible through generous support from the Louis Franklin Smith Foundation, with additional funding from the Arlene and Daniel Fisher Foundation.
Join Holocaust survivors for live First Person conversations as they share their experiences in their own words. By viewing First Person testimony students are exposed to the diversity of experiences of Holocaust survivors.
See link above for upcoming conversations.
