Their Testimony. Our Responsibility.

May 22 @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Join NEXTGen Detroit at the Zekelman Holocaust Center for the incredible
opportunity to meet and hear from Rene Lichtman, a local Holocaust survivor
who courageously shares his story of being a child in hiding in France during
the war. Listening to and connecting with our community’s survivors has never
been more important, as we need to acknowledge that our generation will be the
last to hear first-hand accounts of the horrors of the Holocaust. We will
discuss what this collective responsibility looks like and how we can use the
history of the Holocaust to address the rise of antisemitism and hate today.
Attendees will also receive a pass for a future admission into the museum.

5:30 PM: Light appetizers and drinks
6 PM: Program

Please register in advance by May 21.
