The Next Generation Telling the Story
Featuring Mimi Werbler

Mimi Werbler is Second Vice President of the Board of the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education (Chhange) at Brookdale Community College. As the daughter and daughter-in-law of local Holocaust survivors, she feels compelled to carry on their legacy and message of “Never Forget—Never Again.”
Mimi was a founding member of Chhange’s The Generations: Descendants of Holocaust Survivors group. In response to the declining number of living survivors who can tell their stories in schools and public programs, and numerous requests by schools for survivor testimonies, Mimi has prepared her parents’ histories so that she can relate them and perpetuate the power of their stories.
Mimi will tell her mother’s story, talk about why she, as a Second Generation daughter of Holocaust survivors, has chosen to relate their stories and describe how she learned to do so.

If you have a personal connection to the Shoah and would like to participate in this program, please contact the TJC office at info@thejewishcenter.org

This program is open to the public and we welcome teens and adults to join us.
