An engaging conversation with Gail Ressler, a descendant of family members who lived through the Holocaust.
Join us on Thursday, April 8 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom for an engaging conversation with Gail Ressler, a descendant of family members who lived through the Holocaust.
Gail Ressler’s family story is one of heroism, survival, triumph and love. Her grandmother Gitel Ressler was killed by the Nazis in the forest at Niewodna, Poland, at the beginning of the Holocaust. Her grandfather Chaim Ressler knew the rest of the family needed to escape or they would meet the same fate. Although Gitel and Chaim’s oldest son, Hershel, would also be killed, six remaining members of the family sheltered with a family named Sweiton, including Gail’s father, Moishe. Until the end of the war, the families lived together, ate together and risked their lives together. Eleven members of the family finally emigrated to the United States in 1947.
