Murray Lynn was only 14 years old when he, his mother and three brothers were sent by cattle train to Auschwitz-Birkenau. His mother and brothers were murdered upon their arrival, but Murray survived despite unbearable conditions, and a death march that lasted many weeks. As an orphaned teenager, he was sent to England, Ireland and ultimately America, where he began a new life.
This is the 11th year the Breman Museum is presenting Bearing Witness. Each year attendance increases attracting a broader audience representing Atlantans of all backgrounds. A barrier for many to hear this live testimony from the Holocaust has been the price of admission. A generous grant from the Sara Giles Moore Foundation allows everyone to hear these stories first-hand at no cost. Everyone is invited to take advantage of this free offering because it is vitally important to share the stories as the witness generation is rapidly diminishing.
This event is FREE.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 678-222-3700.
Guided tours of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:30 PM. Murray will be telling his remarkable story beginning at 2:00 PM.
Free Parking is available at the museum (with free overflow parking available at The John Marshal Law School on 18th between W. Peachtree and Spring) and seating is first-come, first-served, so be sure to arrive early in order to secure your spot!
Free admission to the 2019-2020 Bearing Witness Series is provided through a generous gift from The Sara Giles Moore Foundation.
