In-Person Class: The Elderwise classroom at the Vineyard Church.
Join Judy as she tells the story of her mother's encounter with the Gestapo after Kristallnacht (Night of the Broken Glass - November 1938), her escape from Germany during World War II, and her adjustment to life in America. Following the storytelling, Judy will describe the research that went into chronicling her mother's journey. In the second part of the program, participants will have the opportunity to share stories about their own parents, using a series of "conversation starters."
