Stories of Survival: Bluma Shapiro
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Jewish Museum of Maryland
15 Lloyd Street
We are fortunate to live in a community where many Holocaust survivors have made it their mission to share their stories with both adult and student audiences. We are privileged to welcome two survivors to JMM while Remembering Auschwitz is on view. Join us to hear the personal testimonies of these extraordinary women. Bluma Shapiro is a Polish Holocaust survivor whose Holocaust experiences included confinement with her family in a ghetto, slave labor and deportation to several concentration and death camps including Auschwitz. Ms. Shapiro’s testimony will be illuminated by Maura Roth-Gormley who will use a Crankie, an old storytelling form originally designed to be a portable form of entertainment used by traveling artists, to help share her story.
