Lunchbox Lecture Series: “Yellow & Orange: How Women Resisted and Survived the Holocaust”

March 22, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

The Virginia Holocaust Museum contains more than 200 separate accounts of survivors who settled in the Commonwealth after World War II.

Tim Hensley, the museum’s Director of Collections, will use the experiences of four women who came to Virginia, to discuss the obstacles each faced in different parts of Europe in order to survive the Nazis’ attempt to eradicate European Jewry and how each of their stories contributes to what we know about the Holocaust.

The talk is free and open to the public. Guests are welcome to bring a lunch to enjoy during the program.
