Jewish communities throughout Europe are increasingly threatened. Physical attacks against Jews and Jewish institutions are on the rise. Anti-Semitic discourse has been mainstreamed as never before, and Jews are fleeing in record numbers.
We will explore these disturbing trends, with a focus on how Israel has been used to stoke this bigotry not just in Europe, but worldwide.
Ellisa Sagor, AJC’s Director of Marketing and Strategic Communications will brief us on the situation and lead a Q&A.

Holocaust survivors and liberators were invited to participate in a project that honors their legacies.
Brian Marcus, professional photographer and grandson of Holocaust survivor Fred Marcus, and June Hersh, bestselling author of Recipes Remembered, are gathering images and quotes, with the goal of creating a traveling gallery exhibit and book.
Participants had a private photo session with Brian where they were photographed individually as well as with family members. June then interviewed participants about their experiences during the war to elicit a meaningful quote to accompany the photographs. As a thank you, each participant received a professional 8X10 portrait.

GUEST SPEAKER ANNOUNCED:
Featuring guest speaker Lyuba Abramowich, Holocaust survivor and partisan fighter.
Lyuba Abramowich is originally from Slonim, Poland (This area later became Belorussia). After losing her husband, only son, and entire family in a massacre, she fled to the forest and joined the partisans in August 1942. Lyuba fought as a soldier in all the battles of her brigade, and also helped to care for the wounded. For one of her missions, she organized a group of seven women partisans (including herself) to blow up a train. By the end of the war, she had helped to derail 18 enemy troop trains.
To hear the rest of Lyuba’s story, please join us at the dinner.
We look forward to seeing you on January 25.
3GNY and The Museum of Tolerance New York present a screening of the film Nicholas Winton: The Power of Good
7pm – Light Reception and Tour
8pm – Film Screening
Cost: $36. Click here to register
A gripping documentary about the courage and determination of a young English man, Nicolas Winton, who saved the lives of 669 children during the Holocaust. Between March 13 and August 2, 1939, Nicholas Winton organized 8 transports to take children from Prague to new homes in Great Britain, and kept it a secret until in 1988 when his wife discovered a scrapbook documenting his heroic mission. Winton “had an intuition” about the fate of the Jews when he visited Prague in 1939 and he quietly but decisively got down to the business of saving lives. We learn how only two countries, Sweden and Britain, answered his call to harbor the young refugees; how documents had to be forged; and how once foster parents signed for the children on delivery, it was the last he saw of them.
Hanna Slone, one of the 669 children, will host a Q&A following the film.

This is a special opportunity to join other 3Gs together to see a new off-Broadway play called “The Soap Myth,” about a young investigative journalist who works to unravel a story about the Holocaust and combat deniers. The show is a serious investigation of history, but it is also a very touching and human story about the friendship between the journalist and a Holocaust survivor.
We have a discounted group rate for our group, and after the play we’re invited to participate in an exclusive Q&A session with the play’s director Jeff Cohen. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.
For more information on the play, visit thesoapmyth.com

About Anna Pasternak:
Anna Pasternak was born in Zbydniow, a village in Southern Poland. In early October 1939, the Germans invaded, occupied the area, and a few days later Anna, her parents and two younger brothers were expelled from their home and ordered to go East. For eight months they lived in Janow, a small town near Lemberg (currently Lvov, Ukraine). In July 1940, Soviet soldiers came at night, loaded them into cattle cars and sent them to labor camps in Siberia together with thousands of others. After Siberia and some wanderings the family lived in Kazakhstan for four years. In 1946 they returned to Poland to discover the horrors of the Holocaust, yet the family never returned to their ancestral hometown. Anna came to the U.S. in 1955, where she became an active member of several Jewish organizations. She speaks several languages, has taught nursery school and for the past 30 years has been actively involved in the real estate business.
