Temple Concord will hold a Kristallnacht program at the synagogue and on Zoom on Wednesday, November 9, at 7:30 pm. The program will include the documentary “Letters to Frieda,” a Julian Farris film production with Holocaust survivor Michele Willner Levy and a discussion with Levy, who will share her family’s story. Registration is required in advance to receive the Zoom link and can be made here, meeting ID 783 628 8415 and passcode 867957. All are welcome to attend.
“Michele Willner Levy is featured in this documentary about her family’s survival and heartbreaking destruction in the wake of the Holocaust,” said organizers of the event. “Michele is one of the youngest witnesses to the Holocaust and the keeper of her family’s history. She has a treasure trove of artifacts from that time: pictures, passports and handwritten letters that mask an unspeakable horror, and tie her to a past she never knew.”
Organizers added, “Levy will be joining us on Zoom from her home in Pennsylvania. She will share her uncle’s account about Kristallnacht, including his arrest that night. There will be an opportunity for questions, as well.”
“We are honored that Michele has agreed to do this program with us,” organizers continued. “Rabbi Barbara Goldman-Wartell worked with her to plan many Yom Hashoah v’Hagvurah programs in Allentown before she come to Binghamton.”
