Panel Inspired by Film Collection of Interviews That Strives to Educate and Keep Memories of the Holocaust Alive
Holocaust Museum LA is proud to host a panel discussion with third-generation Holocaust survivors, who are featured in “If You Heard What I Heard,” a collection of film-based interviews that focus on keeping the stories of the Holocaust alive and relevant for today. The event will be virtual and take place on Monday, Nov. 1, at 7 p.m. It will feature project founder Carolyn Siegel and “If You Heard What I Heard” interviewees Aaron Aftergood, Dena Grimshaw, Molly R. Stern and Vivienne Schlussel.
“If You Heard What I Heard” is a collection of interviews with grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, recounting the pain, loss and resilience of their grandparents. Siegel, a Los Angeles native and the grandchild of two survivors, was inspired by her own family story and the desire to relate the lessons of the Holocaust in a way that resonates for today. Fifteen interviews are currently live on the project’s website, with another round set to be released in January 2022 to coincide with International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
