"Sharing the Silence: A Child of a Holocaust Survivor Tells his Father's Story"

Presbyterian Church, 1003 State Street at 10th, B.G.
Rabbi Grumbacher has traveled the country during the past decade, telling his father's story to adults and children, in churches and synagogues,
universities and service organizations.
With the passing of Holocaust survivors and American G.I.s, the Holocaust is becoming "ancient history." This story of one man brings to life this tragic event in the history of humankind.
As one colleague wrote of his presentation,
"We have many speakers and outside programs…Yours will stand out as not only memorable, but also as worth hearing again and again."
