Holocaust Remembrance Program with Gloria Glantz

Thursday, April 2, 7 PM

Merrick Road Golf Course Clubhouse, Clubhouse Road, Merrick

Gloria GLantz was born in Wegrow, Poland in 1939. She had a very loving, and large family which included many uncles, aunts, cousins, two older brothers and grandparents. To save her life during the Nazis' occupation, her parents enlisted the help of a simple, righteous, Christian family.

In her lifetime Gloria has lived in four countries, on two continents, so her journey to America was a very circuitous and unusual one. 

In her professional life as a  teacher, she has made it a mission to see that the Shoah is not forgotten. She is the winner of a fellowship from the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, American Federation of Teachers, and Jewish Labor Committee to study the Holocaust and Resistance. She is also the 2002 recipient of the Spirit of Anne Frank Outstanding Educator Award.
