In commemoration of International Holocaust Day of Remembrance, the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans: Goldring Family Foundation Center for Jewish-Multicultural Affairs (CJMA) and Loyola University New Orleans College of Arts and Sciences invite all to a presentation by Holocaust survivor and Anne Frank Center Board member Pieter Kohnstam. Pieter will share his compelling story of fleeing Amsterdam for Buenos Aires. The talk will be in Spanish, with simultaneous translation into English, and will take place over Zoom.
Pieter Kohnstam was born in Amsterdam and lived with his family in the same apartment building as Anne Frank. In fact, the two families were friendly, and Anne would often entertain Peiter while their parents played bridge. While the Franks famously went into hiding after the first round-up of Jews by the Nazis, the Kohnstams chose to embark on a dangerous journey that eventually led to Argentina.
Sponsor: The Center for Jewish-Multicultural Affairs is made possible by a generous gift from the Goldring Family Foundation.
