Archives at Home: The Dr. Werner Knurr Collection

Thursday, July 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Location: ZOOM Online

Holocaust survivor Dr. Werner Knurr joins AHEC archivist Rachel Lopez to tell the story of his family’s escape from Nazi Germany through the rare and unique collection of artifacts he has generously donated to AHEC. From a comfortable life in Aurich, Germany, to hardships endured under the Nuremberg Laws, and finally to building a new life in Montgomery, Alabama, there is much to be learned from the Knurr family’s experiences.
