“My Parents Never Spoke Of It”: Holocaust Remembrance Lecture by Rosalie Levinson
12 May 2023


In this talk, Rosalie Levinson will explain how, despite their silence, being a child of two Holocaust survivors affected her life, and how she finally learned her parents’ stories. This revelation motivated her to begin speaking, especially to young people, about her parents’ horrific experiences during the Holocaust to help ensure that the IT will never happen again.
