Join our conversation with Holocaust survivor and artist Gabriella Karin! It is both a duty and a privilege to hear the stories of Holocaust survivors while we still can.

Gabriella is a survivor of the Holocaust. She is dedicated to educating young people in schools, at the Holocaust Museum Los Angeles, and the Museum of Tolerance. She has been invited to schools, youth camps, and many other events to help students to understand the history of the Holocaust so it should not repeat again.

Gabriella Karin will share her incredible story of survival through the Holocaust. A Jewish girl in Bratislava, she and her family were forced into hiding during the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia. Gabriella, only 14 years old, and her family spent nine long months hiding in a small apartment across the street from the Nazi-Slovak Gestapo. She and her family survived thanks to the selfless help of their savior, Karol Blanar, whom Gabriella later had recognized as a "Righteous Person Among the Nations." After the Holocaust, she moved to the newly created state of Israel and eventually settled in Los Angeles with her husband, Ofer, and son, Rom. Gabriella has dedicated her life to Holocaust education as a docent and speaker worldwide. She has become an acclaimed sculptor through who she dramatically depicts the horrors of the Holocaust and also inspires hope for a more peaceful future.

Gabriella's memoir-" Trauma, Memory, and the Art of Survival: A Holocaust Memoir "will be for sale at the event.

The proceeds of this event will go towards the building of the Central Valley Button Holocaust Memorial
