Correction: A previous version of this story gave the incorrect date for Holocaust survivor Eva Nathanson's talk in San Luis Obispo. She will speak April 15.
Holocaust survivor Eva Nathanson will speak Wednesday, April 15, in San Luis Obispo as part of a community Holocaust Remembrance Day memorial program.
Nathanson, who immigrated to the United States as a teenager, will share stories of her childhood experiences during World War II in Hungary.
The event will also feature “The Death Tangoes” — memorial music researched and performed by pianist Stanley Stern — as well as a candle-lighting ceremony and a liturgy and teachings by rabbis Linda Bertenthal and Janice Mehring.
Holocaust Remembrance Day, or, Yom HaShoah, commemorates the 6 million Jews and 5 million other people that died during the Holocaust.
The event starts at 7 p.m. at Congregation Beth David, 10180 Los Osos Valley Road in San Luis Obispo, and is jointly organized and supported by the local Jewish community.
