Art Exhibit: A Child Artist in Terezín: Witness to the Holocaust

Reeves Memorial Library
To honor the memory of victims of the Holocaust, and of Terezín in particular, the Honorary Consulate General of the Czech Republic-Philadelphia, offers this unique series of drawings and watercolors by Helga Weissová-Hosková. Transported from Prague to Terezín in December 1941, with her brushes and paints packed among her limited luggage, then twelve-year-old Helga created a personal diary of conditions of life in Terezín. Both Helga and her mother survived, despite deportation to other Nazi camps, including Auschwitz and Mauthausen. This powerful collection of artworks chronicles life during the Holocaust seen through the eyes of a young artist, facing uncertain and extreme conditions as everyday facts of life. This exhibit is sponsored in memory of Laura Sudimack Ridge, mother of former governor Tom Ridge, and the entire Sudimack Family.

Kristallnacht Remembrance Service

St. Joseph Chapel
On November 9-10, 1938, Nazis burned synagogues, looted Jewish homes and businesses and murdered individuals in a nationwide pogrom called Kristallnacht (“Night of Broken Glass”). This year’s guest speaker is Eric W. Blaustein of Pittsburgh. He was born in Chemnitz, Germany in 1926 and grew up under the ever-worsening pressure of Nazi persecution, which lead to Kristallnacht and reached its apex with the physical extermination of the Jewish population. He was liberated from Buchenwald in 1945 by the U.S. Army. Also joining us for this special interfaith service are Holocaust survivors Jack Sittsamer, Shulamit Imber, Sam and Goldie Weinreb and Robert Mendler.
