Dec. 16, 2022: The Impact of The Holocaust on Local Juneau Families

The “Americans and the Holocaust” presented by the Juneau Public Library only runs for a few more days. The show closes on December 20 with a special presentation: 

“Family Stories — Juneau And The Holocaust”
Juneau residents Rebecca Braun, Eva Bornstein, Helena Fagan, and Sheryl Weinberg will share their personal family connections to the Holocaust; stories of loss, survival, and how the Shoah has resonated through the generations.

Host Katie Bausler chats on today’s show with Rebecca Braun about the exhibit, the talk next week, and the close connections the Holocaust has with Juneau.
