Dr. Michael Berenbaum speaks about a variety of Jewish issues from the past as well as in today’s world on Sunday. Dr. Berenbaum was the closing keynote speaker at The Kindertransport Association 2012

When George Fogelson speaks to schools about his mother’s experience during the Holocaust, he brings a relative’s passport stamped with a “J” for Jew.
