FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Free Program: The Nazi Officer's Wife: How One Jewish Woman Survived the Holocaust offered at the Neville Public Museum
Green Bay, WI---March 16, 2015---Join us on Tuesday, March 17 at 6:00 p.m. to hear the story of a Jewish Woman in 1930s Vienna who, with the help of friends, moved to Munich, hid her identity and married a Nazi Party member, thus saving her life.
Angela Schluter, daughter of Edith Hahn Beer, the Nazi Officer's Wife, tells a fascinating story from both her perspective and that of her mother's, and how it affected her upbringing. She is arguably the only Jew born in an Aryan hospital during the war -- and as a four year old she has faded memories of flying to England to safety.
Please join Ms. Schluter as she speaks with passion and sensitivity about My Jewish Mother, My Nazi Father. An accomplished and affecting public speaker, she has made many speeches and television appearances in the US, England, and Germany. In America, she has appeared on C-Span, Extra, and NBC-TV, as well as at the Hebrew Union College in New York and the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.
Generously co-sponsored by Milwaukee's Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center and Congregation Shalom.
Tuesday, March 17, 6:00 p.m. Program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
