Be the Change Speaker Series Presents Julie Kohner: Voices of the Generations
Julie Kohner has been a Jewish educator for over thirty years, with a master’s degree in educational counseling. After Julie’s mother, Hanna, a Holocaust survivor, passed away in 1990, Julie began to create educational programs to honor the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. Her goal was to teach the Holocaust as seen through her mother’s eyes. This was the beginning of “Voices of the Generations,” a unique and personal approach to Holocaust education.
Julie Kohner has presented “Voices of the Generations” for the past twenty-six years. Julie's parents wrote an autobiography, Hanna and Walter, A Love Story, which traces their journey from 1930s pre-war Europe to reuniting after the end of the war. “Voices of the Generations” teaches the devastation of the Holocaust through its impact on one family. It is through their only child, Julie, that Hanna and Walter’s story lives on.
Join CANDLES as we host Julie Kohner to hear her family’s story and learn about the work of “Voices of Generations.”
This event is made possible in part by the Florence and Lawrence Spungen Family Foundation. Admission is free and open to the public.
