Foundation Lecture: A Holocaust Survivor Remembers

Moffatt Auditorium and | October 03, 2022 5:30 pm

The William S. Brettmann Lecture

Allyson Daly, an English instructor at WCC, will interview Renée Fink who survived the Holocaust in the Netherlands by being a
“Hidden Child.” Born in the Netherlands, Renée Fink went into hiding at the age of four. She was fortunate in being able to stay with a Catholic Dutch family until after the war ended when she was eight. Reunited with her grandmother, they lived in another Dutch
town until they came to the U.S. in 1948. Sadly, Renée and her grandmother were unable to live together, and she was sent to yet another family in the Adirondack mountains.

Although Renée lived in an occupied and heavily bombed part of Holland during World War II, she shares with audiences why that time in her life turned out to be some of her best years. In her talks, Renée likes to stress the resistance, goodness, and courage of people during war times and why those traits remain so important.

Free and open to the public. No registration required.
