Sam and Regina Spiegel found love in the most unlikely of places—at a forced labor camp in German-occupied Poland. For Gad Beck and Manfred Lewin, their affection put the young Jewish men at a greater risk, so they kept their forbidden relationship a secret. Even in the darkest hours of the Holocaust, love gave many a reason to hope for a better future, the will to survive, and inspiration to rebuild after the war.

Join Museum historians on Facebook Live to learn how love became an act of resistance for people persecuted by the Nazi regime.

Speaker
Dr. Lindsay MacNeill, Historian, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
