In 1944, 12-year-old Steven Fenves and his family were forced from their home in Subotica, Yugoslavia, into a Jewish ghetto. While neighbors turned against them and looted their home, their former cook, Maris, rescued their treasured family artwork and recipes. These cherished items offer a glimpse into one family’s life before it was shattered by the Holocaust. Join Steven, a Holocaust survivor and Museum volunteer, and James Beard Award–winning Chef Alon Shaya for a conversation about family recipes and their connections to childhood memories and Holocaust history.
