The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is on the National Mall in Washington. But the biggest community of Holocaust survivors is in South Florida — so next week, the museum is coming to them.
The museum will hold a free program in North Miami Beach on Wednesday for survivors and their families to learn about how to seek restitution for properties that were seized during the Holocaust. “Stolen Legacy: Nazi Theft and the Quest for Justice” will feature two authors, Dina Gold and Suzanne Brown-Fleming, and Diane Foumado, the museum’s chief of research and reference.
The event will take place at 7 p.m. at Beth Torah Congregation’s Benny Rok Campus, 20350 NE 26th Ave. Advance registration is required online, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 561-995-6773.
The same program will take place Tuesday in Sarasota and Thursday in Boca Raton.
Never miss a local story.
According to the Claims Conference, which administers Jewish compensation funds, some 11,000 Holocaust survivors live in South Florida.
