    Meeting with Holocaust survivor Elżbieta Ficowska accompanied by performance of Bente Kahan

    7 April 2019, Wrocław

    We invite you to a special event accompanying the opening of the "Between Life and Death. Stories of Rescue during the Holocaust" exhibition in Wrocław.

    Elżbieta Ficowska was born in Warsaw ghetto in 1942 to Henia and Jossel Koppel. She survived because she was smuggled to the "Aryan side" and was hid from Germans by Stanisława Bussold - a 56-year-old midwife and member of the underground who helped Jews. The only thing left from her Jewish parents is a little silver spoon bearing the girl's name and birth date. Her story is among those presented at the travelling exhibition "Between Life and Death".

    Ficowska will be the guest of honour of the event accompanying the display which will take place on Sunday 7 April at 16:00 at the Zajezdnia History Centre and where she will talk about her life story. Her speech will be followed by a performance by Bente Kahan, one of the best-well known Jewish European solo vocalist, who will be accompanied by Anna Błaut and Karsten Troyke.

    The event is open to the public.

    Venue: Zajezdnia History Centre
    Date: Sunday 7 April, 16:00
    Free entry
