The Holocaust & Intolerance Museum of New Mexico presents "Corrie Remembers"
POWERFUL, RIVETING, EMOTIONALLY CHARGED & THOUGHT PROVOKING
HER ONLY WEAPON AGAINST EVIL WAS LOVE
The Holocaust & Intolerance Museum of New Mexico proudly presents "Corrie Remembers"
Many have heard the story through Corrie's book, The Hiding Place, and the motion picture by the same name. For two years during the Nazi occupation of Holland during World War II, the ten Boom family was part of the Dutch underground. Their home was a center for shelter, safety, and hope for hundreds of Jews until they were betrayed by a Dutch neighbor. When Corrie ten Boom was miraculously released from the Ravensbruck concentration camp, she began telling her story to anyone who would listen.
Susan Sandager dressed as Corrie retells this true story. She captures and conveys the essence of Corrie ten Boom's life and work, melting both Christian and Jewish hearts with this presentation about a family of faith, courage, and love.
This museum fundraiser will serve as a remembrance of Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) which occurred throughout much of Nazi Germany in 1938 on the nights of November 9 and 10. Organized bands of Nazis torched synagogues and vandalized Jewish homes, schools and businesses. Close to 100 Jews were killed. In the aftermath, 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and sent to Nazi concentration camps.
A sumptuous dessert reception follows the performance.
The Holocaust & Intolerance Museum of New Mexico is a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federation of New Mexico.
