Two Hidden Children: A Holocaust Story

Wednesday, June 19, 4-5 pm
at The Friday Center for Continuing Education, 100 Friday Center Drive, Chapel Hill

Shelly Weiner was born in Rivne, Poland and was 4 when Nazis invaded her town. Laws forbidding Jews from work and school were passed, and her family realized all Jews would be killed or deported to camps. A farm family in a nearby village where Shelly’s aunt lived served as hiding for 28 months on top of a barn and in an underground bunker. There were four in hiding: Shelly, Shelly’s mother, Rachel, and Rachel’s mother. In 1949, after World War II, Shelly’s family came to the United States. She grew up in Philadelphia and has been living in Greensboro since 1972.

Rachel Kizhnerman and her mother decided to stay in Russia after the war. Rachel went to school in Ukraine and then moved to St. Petersburg where she went to college. In 1980 she and her mother came to the United States and moved to Greensboro.

Shelly and Rachel will be talking about their memories and experiences as young children hidden during the Second World War. This event is co-sponsored by the Friday Center in conjunction with World View’s Global Education Leaders Program.
