 Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center’s special conversation with Cheryl Hecht, the daughter of Holocaust survivor David Hochstein, at Union Terminal on May 7, at 11 a.m., in Reakirt Auditorium. Cheryl Hecht tells the story of her father, David Hochstein, a Holocaust survivor from Cologne, Germany. Rescued by a Kindertransport, he was taken to London when he was 15. The Kindertransport movement was unique in that people of many religions came together to rescue 10,000 mostly Jewish children, bringing them to Great Britain. David’s story is one example of a teenager’s resilience, perseverance, and strength, during the Holocaust. Cheryl has worked as a professional and volunteer in the Jewish community. A graphic designer, she recently retired from the Mayerson JCC after 19 years.
