Contact Judy Diamondstein

Julie Kohner, founder of Voices of the Generations, Inc., explores the war experience of her mother, Hanna, a Holocaust survivor, through interviews with those who knew her best. 

In a visual presentation, you will meet Eva, Hanna’s friend through four concentration camps; Magda, who Hanna lived with after the war; and Friedl, Hanna’s brother. 

Hanna was the first Holocaust survivor living in the U.S. whose story became widely known in this country after being featured on an episode of Ralph Edwards’s “This is Your Life.” Julie’s presentation will also include clips from that episode.

Sponsored by the Jewish Federation’s Women’s Division, PrimeTime at the J and Jewish Family Service.
