Program to mark the Holocaust set for Jan. 28 in Columbus

An event is coming up in a few weeks to mark the Holocaust. Entitled “Never Again! Two Perspectives of the Holocaust,” the program will be held Tuesday Jan. 28th at 6:30 p.m. in the Red Room of the Bartholomew County Library.

Holocaust survivor Esther Davidson and her husband Ed, a retired US Army officer, will offer a powerful and personal look at this dark portion of human history. Esther, born in Poland in 1941, shares childhood memories with words about and pictures of lost family, the trauma of separation, surviving a war and coming to America.

Ed, born in America but with direct links to the Holocaust, talks about the Nuremburg Trials and the WWII Nazi concentration camps, including a visual tour of the infamous Dachau Concentration Camp. Both speakers come to Columbus from the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis.

This event is being held to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is held on Jan. 27th.
