Rescheduled to Tuesday 2/26 DSB Dining Room - 5pm  “Suzanne's Children: How an Underground Network of Catholics, Protestants and Jews Defied the Nazis in Paris and Saved 500 Children from Auschwitz,” featuring Anne Nelson, professor at the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs, author, of  Red Orchestra. The event will be held at 5:00pm in the Wien Experimental Theatre on Wednesday, February 20, 2019. 

Nelson’s book details the story of Suzanne Spaak, a wealthy woman from a Belgian Catholic family who fought secretly against Jewish imprisonment during Nazi Occupation. Spaak used her position in society as a wealthy, Catholic woman to travel freely on behalf of the movement, even going as far as employing Jewish fugitives in her home as “tutors” or “maids”.

This lecture is an uplifting companion talk to the haunting “Ghosts: French Holocaust Children” which is a sculptural and photographic exhibit, by Robert Hirsch, on Jewish children in France during the Shoah, at the Walsh Gallery.

This lecture is co-sponsored by The Bennett Center for Judaic Studies  and the History Department. It is  free and open to the public however, registration is required due to limited seating. To reserve a seat, email bennettcenter@fairfield.edu or call 203-254-4000 x2066.
