Conversations in the Wexner Center: Susan Warsinger
Join us for a conversation with survivor Susan Warsinger as she shares personal stories, photographs, and treasured objects from her experiences during the Holocaust.
The eldest of three children, Susan was born in 1929 in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, where her father owned a thriving linen store. On November 9–10, 1938—Kristallnacht —Nazi thugs smashed the windows and furnishings of her family’s home. Months later, Susan and her brother Joseph were smuggled into France. With the help of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, they received permission to immigrate to the United States. After crossing the Pyrenees into Spain, they sailed from Lisbon, Portugal, and arrived in New York in September 1941.
The program begins promptly at 1:30 pm. Please arrive early, as seating is limited.
This program is free and open to the public.
