Bearing Witness: Unforgettable stories from the Holocaust: Shearith Israel's own Herbert Kohn will be speaking on Sunday, June 9 at 2:00 p.m. at the Breman Museum. As a young boy living in Frankfurt, Germany, Herbert Kohn was an eyewitness to Kristallnacht. His family lived in Germany for 450 years, and both his father and grandfather fought in the German army, yet his father was arrested and sent to Buchenwald concentration camp. There was no safety for Jews in Hitler's Germany, forcing the Kohn family to make decisions that ultimately meant life or death. A guided tour of the Holocaust Gallery will follow the presentation. Free to museum members, $ 12 Adults, $ 8 Seniors, $ 6 Students. Free Parking.
