Holocaust Survivor’s Story

by | Mar 25, 2020 | On The Town

Due to the coronavirus, the Eva Schloss event at the Performing Arts Center was cancelled. Nine hundred seats were sold out in record time to watch the event with Holocaust survivor Eva Schloss. Instead only a very small group of people watched the interview at the Chabad of SCV center, while the general public watched the live feed. Rabbi Choni Marozov organized this once in a lifetime event with his committee for months, but, like many other public events, it needed to be cancelled for health and safety reasons.
Rabbi Ron Hauss lead a captivating interview with Eva, who shared her childhood memories growing up with Anne Frank. After the war Eva’s mom married Anne Frank’s father and thus, she became her stepsister.
Her message was, in spite of her enduring difficult times in the Auschwitz concentration camp, a message of tolerance, love and hope.
Mayor Pro-tem Bill Miranda welcomed the world-renowned speaker, representing the city of Santa Clarita. Six candles were lit by a son of Holocaust victims in memory of the six million Jews who were murdered. To watch the interview, go to http://www.chabadscv.com/eva.
