The YIVO Bruce and Francesca Cernia Slovin Online Museum's inaugural exhibition, Beba Epstein: The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Girl, uses the true story of Beba Epstein, a girl born in Vilna in 1922 who survived the Holocaust, to explore East European Jewish life in the 20th century. The Museum's innovative, interactive storytelling draws on hundreds of materials from YIVO’s archive of 23 million artifacts.
Join us for a discussion about the exhibition featuring YIVO’s Executive Director and CEO, Jonathan Brent; the Chief Curator of the YIVO Bruce and Francesca Cernia Slovin Online Museum, Karolina Ziulkoski; Beba Epstein's son Michael Leventhal; and the VP of Eduation and Exhibits at Holocaust Musuem LA, Jordanna Gessler. Q&A will follow the discussion.
