Holocaust Speaker Series: Reggie Guigui
August 24 @ 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 24 at 11:00 am via Zoom with Reggie Guigui, a guest speaker from the Charleston Jewish Federation’s REMEMBER Program Speakers Bureau.
Reggie Guigui was born in Germany, the daughter of survivors from Poland and Czechoslovakia. She grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, a teacher by profession, and started lecturing when she realized some students didn’t know what the Holocaust was. She has been involved in Holocaust education in Cincinnati before moving to Charleston and works with the Remember Program in Charleston. She has been lecturing since 1990, sharing her parents’ stories using photographs that survived the war.
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.
