"An Historic Evening with Eva Schloss, Step-Sister of Anne Frank" presented by Chabad of Plano/Collin County

Description

Eva Schloss, an 89-year-old Holocaust survivor, peace activist and international speaker, will share her memories of her childhood friend and step-sister Anne Frank and her powerful story of survival, grit, loss, and ultimate triumph of the human spirit. Forty years after the end of World War II, Eva began to share her story. She now travels the globe to spread a message to others to value kindness, diversity, tolerance and our common humanity. Since 1985, Eva Schloss has devoted herself to holocaust education and global peace. She has recounted her wartime experiences in more than 1,000 speaking engagements. She has written two books and has had a play written about her life. In 1999 Eva signed the Anne Frank Peace Declaration along with United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan and the niece of Raul Wallenberg, a legendary figure who rescued thousands of Jews in Budapest. Signed copies of Schloss' book Eva's Story will be available for purchase for $20.
