Beloved: Children of the Holocaust is the incredible story of Mary Burkett, an untrained artist, who was inspired to draw a picture of a boy she found online – a boy who turned out to be Hersch Goldberg, a five-year-old killed in the gas chambers at Auschwitz. Hersch was the first of what would become a collection of 27 “beloved children” who have now inspired millions across the globe and their message of love and tolerance.
November 9 -10 is called Kristallnacht. We chose the date in memory of those that endured The Night of Broken Glass. In 1938, Nazi leaders unleashed a series of pogroms against the Jewish population in Germany and recently incorporated territories. The night is also known as The Night of Broken Glass due to the shattered glass that littered the streets after the vandalism and destruction of Jewish-owned businesses, synagogues, and homes. Together we will remember this tragic night and the atrocities of the Holocaust while stepping out of the darkness to work together to unite and bring awareness to the Holocaust Memorial of Greenville.
The program begins with Arielle Nakdimon, President of the Greenville Jewish Federation, sharing the local impact of the Holocaust Memorial of Greenville. Caroline Warthen, Co-Chair of the Greenville Jewish Film Festival, will read a Holocaust survivor’s recollection of Kristallnacht and a video featuring Mayor Knox White. Mary Burkett will be available before and after the film for Q&A.
