Survivor: Aron’s Story
A Professional Development Workshop for Educators
Rescheduled from February!
Tuesday, May 9, 2017, 4-6 p.m.
Welywn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road
Glen Cove, NY
Author Alex Teplish immerses the audience into his grandfather’s memoir, utilizing Shoah Foundation video testimony, artwork from the book, as well as historical music and imagery. Humanities and art educators are encouraged to join us for this engaging presentation.
The first part of Survivor: Aron’s Story shares Aron’s experience of living in Odessa, Ukraine and his survival as a teenager under the Romanian/Nazi occupation during WWII. Aron’s story, visually depicted in the graphic novel form, allows readers to experience the events first hand, through the eyes of young Aron himself, while learning about one of the least documented episodes of the Holocaust. The second part of the book delves deeper into the history of the Jewish Diaspora, connecting this historical background to the roots of Jewish persecution, WWII and the Holocaust.
