The books, donated by Dr. Dan Gillis, are given in honor of Dr. Helen Segall and Professor Stanley Segall. godin-sm.gifNesse Godin: Eleven years old when World War II broke out, Nesse Godin, born and raised in Lithuania, survived a ghetto, concentration camp, four labor camps, and a death march. She has dedicated her adult life to teaching about the Holocaust and the consequences of hatred to both children and adults. She is Co-President of the Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Friends of Greater Washington, and she volunteers weekly at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. In her talk, Nesse Godin will describe the rich foundations that her Jewish family life before the war provided her, and her resolve after the war to speak out against the horrors of genocide, violence, and hate.

Support for this event comes from the Louis and Bessie Stein Foundation, The Milton and Miriam Handler Foundation, and the Friends of Judaic Studies. For further information:, 215-895-6388, www.
