Chabad of Plano/Collin County presents Eva Schloss
Eva Schloss, the 89-year-old Holocaust survivor, peace activist and international speaker, will share her memories of her 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, Schloss began to share her story. She now travels the globe to spread a message to others to value kindness, tolerance and our common humanity, and that respect for diversity make a difference in bringing our communities together.
Signed copies of Schloss’ book, Eva’s Story, will be available for purchase for $20. Additionally, paintings by her brother, Heinz Geiringer, who perished in the camps, will be on display in the lobby, and copies will be available for purchase. This world-famous artwork was painted while the family was in hiding and portrays the stunning and impactful landscape of a Holocaust family’s life in an Amsterdam attic.
