A Holocaust Remembrance Lecture

Join us at the New Richmond Branch Monday, April 13, 6-7:15 p.m. for Henry Fenichel's presentation, "A Holocaust Remembrance Lecture, Mapping Our Tears with Survivor Henry Fenichel." Henry Fenichel was born in the Netherlands in 1938. Shortly after the Nazi rise to power, sensing the danger, Henry’s mother sent a request for their relocation to Palestine. After Henry’s father was deported by the Nazis and they still had no response to their request to immigrate, Henry and his mother went into hiding in a convalescence home. When Henry was six years old, they were discovered hiding and were transported to the Westerbork Detention Camp. Shortly after arriving, they learned of a prisoner exchange that would allow a select number of Jews to escape to Palestine. Through a miraculous series of events, Henry’s mother was able to get them on the list. In 1944, Henry, his mother and 220 individuals left Bergen Belsen, eventually arriving to freedom in Palestine.
