From USHMM: Watch Live Program | A Story of Survival Told through Generations



Jewish headmistress Stella Rein fostered an atmosphere for students to learn and grow.


WHEN: Wednesday, September 13, 2 p.m. ET
WHERE: United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Facebook page


Lilly Malnik’s young granddaughter Miriam couldn’t help but ask about the tattoo on her arm. The series of numbers was inked on Lilly’s body at Auschwitz when she was 15. Over the years, Lilly shared more and more of her painful Holocaust experiences with her granddaughter. Now, together they answer questions from a new generation, reaching millions on social media with Lilly’s story.

Request a reminder to join us as we commemorate Grandparents Day with Lilly and Miriam Ezagui.
