The auditorium at the Suffolk Y JCC was filled to capacity last Thursday as octogenarian and concentration camp survivor Eva Schloss took the stage to speak about her childhood with stepsister Anne Frank and her experiences during the holocaust.
Eva, whose family also went into hiding in Holland and was betrayed and subsequently sent to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp spoke eloquently and at length about her friendship with Anne, her experiences in Auschwitz and her life after her release. Several dignitaries also spoke at the event including Congressman Steve Israel who presented Mrs. Schloss with a flag that was flown over the White House in her honor. The audience was spellbound and at times in tears as Eva spoke, answered many questions and then held a moving candle lighting tribute to those who perished.
The program, A Historic Evening with Anne Frank’s Stepsister was a joint project of The Chai Center of Dix Hills, Chabad of Stony Brook and Chabad of Mid-Suffolk.
