Zvi Bielski, son of Zus Bielski, a leader of the Bielski partisan group, will share his family’s history. The Bielskis, one of the most significant Jewish resistance efforts during the Holocaust, provided a safe haven for Jews, particularly women, children, and elderly persons who managed to flee into the forests. Under the protection of the Bielski group, more than 1,200 Jews survived the war.
Helena Flaum, a local Holocaust survivor, will tell how she survived by hiding as a Christian forced laborer in Poland. Her story of heroism is marked by the acts of kindness of others and her own resilience and strength.
The Mount St. Mary Academy Choir, from Watchung, NJ, will return to perform a selection of Holocaust songs.
