Join us at 1 P.M. on select Sundays to hear testimony from a Holocaust survivor. Free with admission.

Upcoming dates are October 6, November 9, and December 7.


Celia Kener was born in 1935 in Lvov, Poland. When the Germans invaded in 1941, life totally changed. Her father was drafted into the Russian Army, while the rest of her family was forced to move into the ghetto. Celia’s mother was selected for a labor camp and was periodically brought in to visit on weekends. Believing she would not survive, Celia’s mother found a Catholic couple willing to hide Celia. Celia was eventually reunited with both her parents. The family came to the U.S. in 1949.
