Holocaust Remembrance Day Lecture with ETHEL KATZ
Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 7 PM
Merrick Golf Course Clubhouse, Clubhouse Road, Merrick
Ethel was born and grew up in Buczacz, Poland, which is now part of Ukraine. Her family was large and close-knit. The German Army entered the town in 1941 followed closely by mobile killing squads who murdered her twin brother and other young Jewish men in a forest near the town. The rest of her family escaped immediate destruction by hiding in barns and fields for several years, reliant upon their non-Jewish neighbors for food. Later Ethel’s family members were murdered in their hiding place. Ethel narrowly escaped and survived that last few months of the war on her own. The Soviet Army liberated her town in 1944. After the war, Ethel immigrated to the United States, where she raised a family. She has written a memoir of her experiences during the Holocaust, "Our Tomorrows Never Came," which will be available for purchase and book signing.
