Holocaust survivor Zosia Brodecki as a child

Join your UMGC colleagues for a conversation by Holocaust survivors Zosia and Bolek Brodecki in observance of Human Rights Awareness Month. Theirs is a remarkable story about creating a new life in America, an uplifting one among so many devastating accounts of families torn apart and millions of lives lost during the Holocaust.

In addition to meeting the parents, you will also be introduced to two of their adult children, UMGC employee Roma Brodecki and her brother Joseph Brodecki, who led international fundraising efforts to build the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Zosia, 88, and Bolek, 94, who met in a refugee camp for displaced persons in Landsberg, Germany, after the war, were featured in a Washington Post article in May. 

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to join us for this free presentation on Thursday, December 15, from noon to 1 p.m. at the UMGC Academic Center at Largo Auditorium. Light refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited, so please register early.

If you require a special accommodation to fully participate in this event, contact Accessibility Services at accessibilityservices@umuc.edu or 240-684-2287. Please allow a minimum of 72 hours prior to the event to arrange the accommodation.
