Yale’s Slifka Center Hosts Holocaust Survivor Betty Deutsch

SlifkaCenter

Yale University’s Slifka Center hosted Holocaust survivor Betty Deutsch  at an intimate gathering in honor of Yom HaShoah called Zikaron BaSalon - Memory in the Living Room.  Betty, a devoted Ahavath Achim member, shared her journey from a small farm town in Hungary to Auschwitz and beyond. Betty has shared her war time experiences with students at many schools to help ensure the memory of the Holocaust never fades from history.  Sharon Risch took this picture of Betty surrounded by the Yale students who attended the event.  Next to Betty is Erica Cohen, another shul member, who attended the event. Behind the gal in the white blouse is Sharon’s son, Evan, a Yale student and Slifka Center member.
