Under the Shadow of the Holocaust

The Holocaust Living Workshop presents:

Under the Shadow of the Holocaust: a Hungarian Woman in Auschwitz

Agathe Ehrenfried grew up in Rakosliget, Hungary. She was twenty-one years old when, in 1944, the Germans occupied her country and soon after began rounding up the Jews. Over the course of the next twelve months Ehrenfried passed through several concentration camps including Auschwitz-Birkenau and Plaszow (Krakow), an experience that will forever be etched in her mind. Today, Ehrenfried speaks about her traumatic past at schools and stresses the need to keep “the flame of memory” alive.  Agathe Ehrenfried will be introduced by Phyllis Epstein, a local philanthropist and community leader who is actively involved in the Shoah Foundation Institute.
