Cohen Conversation: From Berlin, Germany to Berlin, NH - A Second Generation Story
Event description: This Cohen Conversation will feature special guest Milt Zweig, who will discuss his family's personal ties to the Holocaust as well as some of the special documents and artifacts that he has collected while researching his family's past. Family photos and documents that have never been displayed publicly will be included as part of this event. Milt will present for about 20-25 minutes and then there will be an opportunity for discussion and the chance to examine items from his collection.
About the speaker: Milt Zweig lives in New Hampshire and has spent countless hours researching his family members and what happened to them during the Holocaust. His research revealed that more than 25 of his relatives were directly affected via imprisonment, exile, slave labor, Kristallnacht, and the gas chambers at multiple camps. His presentation will explain how the Jews of Germany lived before the Third Reich took hold and how they became swept up in an ever-increasing wave of destructive anti-Semitism.
This event is hosted by the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies in partnership with the KSC Archives. The event is free and open to all. It is available as an in-person offering only, but the presentation will be recorded. In the case of inclement weather, the backup date for this event is Wednesday, 1/31. Light refreshments will be served!
This event is part of the Cohen Center calendar.
