In Search of Parents' Fate: Rita Rimalower's Postcards from Glasgow 1940-1942

JANUARY 15, 2017 2PM

KTA member Michele Gold shares this collection highlighting the experience of her mother, Rita Rimalower-Nettler. From 1940-1942, Rita sent postcards, six of which are on exhibit, pleading for news of her parents. Each postcard tells a heartbreaking story of separation and loss, themes echoed in the personal narrative of Holocaust Survivor, Eva Brettler who will speak to the loss of her own mother as an 8-year-old girl.

RSVP for opening reception to or (323)456-5083.
