Holocaust Speaker Series: Shirley Mills
August 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Holocaust Speaker Series, held each Wednesday at 11:00 am, features Holocaust survivors and descendants of survivors sharing stories of life before, during, and after the Holocaust. Join us on Wednesday, August 17 at 11:00 am via Zoom with Shirley Mills, a guest speaker from the Charleston Jewish Federation’s REMEMBER Program Speakers Bureau.
Shirley Mills is the daughter of two Holocaust survivors. Born in a refugee camp in Italy, raised in Israel. Shirley came to the States as a young teen. Her parents’ story is of pain, hope, and amazing courage and resilience. In their memory, she wants to share their story because humanity has not learned from the past.
Generously sponsored by Margaret and Michael Valentine and presented in partnership with the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center, the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, and the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center.
