The Virginia Holocaust Museum’s I Witnessed History program gives Museum visitors a unique opportunity to hear first-hand about the life experiences of extraordinary individuals who lived through difficult periods of history. Each session will include a lecture followed by a question and answer session during which visitors can interact with our special guests and learn more by asking questions.
Hank Greenspan, a psychologist and playwright at the University of Michigan, has been interviewing, teaching, and writing about a group of survivors that he has known since the 1970s. He will discuss what one learns through deepening conversation and sustained acquaintance that rarely arises in single “testimonies.”
I Witnessed History programs are free and open to the public but registration is strongly encouraged.
