CANCELLED!! An Evening with Eva Schloss, Stepsister of Anne Frank

March 29, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

 In 1938, Germany invaded Austria, causing many Jewish families to flee Austria to avoid persecution. Among the emigrants was 8-year old Eva Geiringer, who with her mother, brother, and father moved first to Belgium and then to Holland, where one of her neighbors was a German Jewish girl of the same age.

The two girls became friends and playmates. They passed the time by skipping and playing hopscotch and marbles. Ultimately, both girls and their families were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. Later they would become step sisters.

Eva survived her concentration camp experience and made her way to England, where she married Zvi Schloss and raised three daughters.  Her step-sister did not survive Auschwitz, but kept a diary that did. Her name was Anne Frank.

Since 1985, Mrs. Eva Schloss has devoted herself to Holocaust education and global peace.


Doors open at 5:00
