Memories of Lublin and The War: A Conversation with Rose Lipszyc
On June 17, 2021 we will be hosting a very special Brama Talks entitled, “Memories of Lublin and The War: A Conversation with Rose Lipszyc.” Rose Lipszyc is a survivor who was born in Lublin in 1929. She lost over fifty members of her family in the Holocaust. She herself survived because of a false identity and help from Polish Catholics. She spent part of the war in Germany as a Polish slave laborer.
In conversation with Leora Tec, Rose will share, not only her moving wartime experiences, but also some of her memories of prewar Lublin.
