HHREC Memory Keepers Story Hour
January 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The next episode in the HHREC Memory Keepers Story Hour series on Zoom will feature HHREC GenerationsForward Speaker Naomi Koller.
Koller will share her family’s story of her grandmother Anna Koller, who devised a daring plan to save her family from death at the start of the Nazi occupation. The tale begins in the Carpathia n Mountain region of Romania in the town of Viznitz, and relates the Koller family’s deportation to the ghetto, their march through the mountains to the labor camp known as Transnistria (also known as the “Forgotten Cemetery”), and ends with their liberation, journey to Israel, and immigration to New York. The centerpiece of this story is Anna’s beloved piano, which returns as a character in the journey that ultimately leads to an unlikely escape for the Koller family.
