Lecture Examines "Beyond Anne Frank: The Case of Kitty Weichherz"

Tuesday April 6, 2010
6:00 PM • Texas Hillel, 2105 San Antonio St.


The Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies and the White Rose Society present a lecture titled "Beyond Anne Frank: The Case of Kitty Weichherz" by Professor Daniel Magilow, of the University of Tennessee - Knoxville.

Born the same year as Anne Frank, a Czechoslovakian girl named Kitty Weichherz and her parents were deported to Auschwitz in 1942. Thirteen year-old Kitty and her immediate family did not survive, but a detailed and loving diary kept by Kitty's father remained safe with her aunt. Kitty's story provides a powerful and poignant document of daily life in Europe on the eve of Hitler's Final Solution and the basis of In Her Father's Eyes Exhibit.
