An Evening with Holocaust Survivor Eva Schloss
January 26 @ 7:00 pmFree
Wednesday, January 26, 2022 | 7:00 PM | Holocaust & Humanity Center
On the eve of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, survivor Eva Schloss will share her powerful story live in Reakirt Auditorium to commemorate the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center’s third anniversary at Union Terminal.
Born Eva Geiringer in Vienna, Austria, Eva and her family fled to the Netherlands after Germany annexed Austria in 1938. They were neighbors of Anne Frank’s family during their time in Amsterdam. After the Nazis occupied the Netherlands, Eva and her family went into hiding. The family was later betrayed and sent to Westerbork Concentration Camp and then to Auschwitz II-Birkenau.
After the war, Eva and her mother moved back to Amsterdam and reconnected with Otto Frank, whom her mother married — making Eva Anne Frank’s posthumous stepsister.
Learn more about Eva’s story during this intimate conversation with her on January 26. HHC will also unveil Eva’s virtual intelligence testimony in our newest exhibit, Dimensions in Testimony. Using specialized recording and display technologies and next-generation natural language processing, DIMENSIONS IN TESTIMONY, allows visitors to ask two-dimensional displays of Holocaust survivors questions and receive responses in real time.
This free event is hosted in partnership with Cincinnati Museum Center.
