NBC Visits the Museum of Jewish Civilization to Mark 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz

March 10, 2020

On January 27th, 2020, a group of students visited the Museum of Jewish Civilization at the University of Hartford as part of our HERO Center programming. Here, they met with local Holocaust survivor Ernest “Bumi” Gelb to hear his story. NBC News wanted to mark the occasion as it was the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp. Our own Sharone Kornman, Board member and Secretary of Voices of Hope, was also interviewed about her family’s experience during the Holocaust.
