  Nov 14 Journey Back to Fohrenwald

Presentation by Helen Block.  This event is co-sponsered by Beit Chaverim  and Beth El of Norwalk. It will take place at Beth El. Refreshments will be served. No charge.

Below is a brief synopsis of the presentation:

August 2018 I discovered that Fohrenwald, the displaced persons camp where I was born after WWII was being featured in a documentary film. My parents and I had lived there for over five years and when we immigrated to America, Fohrenwald was in our past. That it existed in any form was not in my consciousness. But a museum created and dedicated to the multi-layered history of Fohrenwald was about to open. And I was invited to attend.

 

What to do? Could I return to this place in Germany so close to Munich and all that had happened to my parents? Would I be able to face the possible memories stirred up?

 

I share my experience in Fohrenwald with a chronicled presentation from when I was a little girl named Hinde with photos and documents. There is a pictorial of my visit to Munich and video short of what Fohrenwald has become. My commentary is woven into what happened to survivors in the aftermath of WWII. This period of history long neglected is being studied and uncovered.

Kosher Home Delivered Meals

The Pamela and Michael Hirsch Kosher Home Delivered Meal program at Schoke JFS provides meals delivered weekly to those in our communities who might have difficulty shopping and preparing their own food.

Once a week, volunteers deliver five kosher microwave ready catered meals provided by Jewish Senior Services. They also spend a little time visiting with the recipients.

Each meal includes a main course, vegetable, starch, soup, fruit, bread and dessert.

This is a subscription service with frequency flexibility. The cost is $7.50/meal or $37.50/week. Reduced rates are available for families who qualify.

For more information about the program or to volunteer to assist, please contact
