Through My Grandmother’s Eyes: The Veit Simon Family during the Holocaust


Join us at Fayetteville Public Library for a presentation with Courtney Doi, a 3rd generation Holocaust survivor. Courtney will discuss her grandmother's experience as a refugee escaping the Holocaust as a teenager, and about the impact the Holocaust had on her family for generations. Featuring old family photographs and firsthand accounts from her grandmother’s writing, Courtney’s presentation will explore both Judith's journey out of Germany as a teenage refugee and her extended family's experiences across Europe during the war. In addition, Courtney will discuss her own travels back to Germany to further understand her family history and how we, as individuals, can work to prevent genocide in the future.
