Holocaust Survivors Speak Series: Sarah Moses
September 4 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm
Sara Moses’ earliest memories are of life in the Piotrków ghetto. Because she had no toys, she often used her imagination to create playthings. After Sara’s mother was taken from the ghetto and killed in a Nazi death camp, she herself was sent to a Nazi work camp and later to Bergen-Belsen. Though she contracted scarlet fever, typhus and typhoid, and children all around her were dying, Sara survived. She credits the imagination she cultivated many years earlier in the ghetto for enabling her to mentally escape from the horrors around her. Sara was liberated by British troops in April 1945. Soon after, she was reunited with her father, who also had survived the death camps. Now, Sara tells her story in an attempt to combat what she calls “destructive, deadly silence” – the refusal to speak out for those in need. Her message empowers audiences to fight injustices by making themselves heard.
