Bearing Witness: Ben Walker (Romania)
Ben Walker will be speaking as part of The Breman Museum's oral history event series titled Bearing Witness: Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust.
Ben was six years old when he and his family were ordered to report to the railroad station within four hours. He and his mother survived the Holocaust in conditions beyond description in Transnistria, in southern Ukraine. Following the war, he and his mother immigrated to Israel where he served in the Israeli army. Mr. Walker later moved to the United States, where he attended the University of Florida and Syracuse University before moving to Atlanta.
Guided tours of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:30 PM. Tours are capped at 75 persons in total, on a first-come, first served basis. While the tour is in session, the Holocaust Gallery will be closed from 12:30 – 2 PM.
Doors to the auditorium will open at 1:15 PM. The speaker will begin at 2:00 PM.
Free Parking is available at the museum (with free overflow parking available at The John Marshall Law School on 18th between W. Peachtree and Spring) and seating is first-come, first-served, so be sure to arrive early in order to secure your spot!
Free admission to the 2018 Bearing Witness Series is provided through a generous gift from The Sara Giles Moore Foundation.
