On the Fast of Tisha B’Av – The Jewish National Day of Mourning
A discussion with a survivor of Mengele’s Experiments
Jona Laks is a survivor of Dr. Mengele’s horrific twin experiments. She survived the Holocaust along with her twin sister. She will recall the horrors that lead up to her Holocaust experience. She’ll share about her family’s desperate conditions in the Lodz ghetto and the extermination of her mother, father and brothers at the Chelmno concentration camp. She’ll speak of the sanctity and preciousness of life.
In 2015 Jona spoke before the UN General Assembly. She will share some of what she said then and about that experience as well.
This is an event to remember and is not to be missed. Come touch history in a manner we may never be able to do in the near future, as the generation of survivors is slowly fading away.
