Monday, June 7th at the FJMC biennial convention we have two spots!
9:00 - 10:00 PM EDT Special guest speaker Lea Hochman
For many years, Lea Hochman (nee Zimmerman) kept her painful memories of the Shoah locked inside. She was born in a small village in Poland called Phorce.
In November 1942, her family was taken, along with the 9 other Jewish Families in that village, to a ghetto in the city of Komarno. She escaped the ghetto minutes beforeIt was liquidated.
Here story of survival is unusual. She was able to survive by disguising herself as a Gentile. “I did my identity, not my body”. In January 2011, Lea spoke publicly for the first time at a private high school in Toronto.
Since then, she has spoke to many different groups to share her experiences and to spread the message of hope. Here is a bit more on Lea
Lea is a very much in demand speaker and we are quite honored to have her speak to us both in Yiddish and English about her experience.
