"When I was in hiding, I feared I would be the only Jew who survived. A terrible empty feeling came over me at the loss of so many cousins, and I felt as though I were standing all alone in a huge stadium." - Henry Friedman

Born in Brody, Poland in 1928, Henry Friedman will share his story of survival during the Holocaust. Henry, his mother, his younger brother, and their teacher lived in hiding for 18 months. Henry is a member of the Speakers Bureau of the Holocaust Center for Humanity.

Antisemitism has been a threat to society throughout history and that remains true today. The most effective road to change is education and hearing the stories of others.
