My Friend Abe: A Holocaust Survivor's Story

January 24, 2021 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Abe Piasek was separated from his family at age 12 and survived four death camps in Poland and Germany, including Auschwitz. When he was liberated at age 16, Abe weighed less than 80 pounds. Abe shared his story with hundreds of groups throughout North Carolina because he felt that "people need to know" what happened. He told his story as a warning of what can happen when hate and dehumanization go unchecked.

Steve Goldberg, a friend of Abe's, will conduct a Zoom presentation followed by a Q&A session about why Abe's story matters today.

This FREE event is brought to you by Jewish for Good and the Center for Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education of North Carolina. Registration required. Register here:​
