Holocaust Speaker Series: Hagit Limor Sunberg
September 6, 2023 @ 11:00 am
The Holocaust Speaker Series is held each Wednesday at 11 a.m. on Zoom. The series is sponsored by Margaret & Michael Valentine in partnership with the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage. This week’s speaker is Hagit Limor Sunberg.
Hagit Limor is the daughter of Holocaust survivor Menachem “Moniek” Limor, who was only 8 years old when the Nazis invaded his hometown of Czestochowa, Poland in 1939. Through a series of miracles he survived the ghetto, several hideouts, a labor camp, and a cattle car train to Buchenwald concentration camp, where he was ultimately liberated in 1945. Of his 200 extended family members before the war, only five survived. Moniek’s legacy seeks to empower people to fight bigotry today. Hagit is a ten-time Emmy Award winning freelance journalist after years working for network affiliates. She also works as a professor at the University of Cincinnati CCM Electronic Media Division.
