Event description

Description


Soon all Holocaust survivors will be gone. We are working to ensure their personal stories of tolerance, diversity and triumph are remembered.

The Chabad Jewish community in Lakeview is planning a night with Eva Schloss, stepsister of Anne Frank, on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 7 p.m. At Lane Tech she will share her story of survival with the Chicago community.

For one night only, Eva joins us from London for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Eva will share her story of survival and personal memories of her stepsister Anne Frank.

The evening is as follows:

  • 6 p.m. VIP reception with Eva. Drinks, food and book signing
  • 7 p.m. Program begins

Eva’s inspiring story will be enhanced at the event with a display of paintings by her brother and father, Heinz and Erich Geiringer. This world-famous artwork was painted while in hiding, and portrays the stunning and impactful landscape of a Holocaust family’s life in an Amsterdam attic. Experience a special presentation of Eva's interactive survivor recording, courtesy of USC Shoah Foundation in association with Illinois Holocaust Museum.

Use promo code LakeviewChabad for a $5 ticket discount before Sept. 21. Holocaust survivors will be admitted for free.
