Congregation Beth Evergreen is honored to welcome Judy Winnick as the 2022 Ellen Diesenhof Scholar-in-Residence. Judy will make three presentations about heroines of the Holocaust at the synagogue, 2981 Bergen Peak Drive, Evergreen. All are free and open to the public.
At 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 29, CBE will host a complimentary Middle Eastern dinner followed at 7 p.m. by Judy’s talk “Ravensbruck, Women’s Concentration Camp, A Story of Courage and Hope.” Ravensbruck, the only all-women Holocaust concentration camp, housed women torn from over 20 countries. Imprisoned under horrific conditions, these women defied SS authority when they conspired at great risk to commit imaginative acts of resistance. DINNER SPOTS ARE LIMITED AND RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED.
Judy Winnick portrays courageous women from WWII. She is a featured speaker on the Colorado Humanities/Chautauqua Speakers Bureau and has performed internationally. During her teaching career, she received a Colorado Distinguished Teacher Award.
