The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County presents 50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mrs. And Mrs. Kraus, by Dr. Erwin Tepper on Sunday, April 28, 2019, at 2 PM. Admission is $8 members, $10 non-members.
This is a special program about a group of 50 Jewish children, 25 boys and 25 girls, who in 1939 were brought out of Europe’s inferno by a philanthropic organization, Beth Sholom. The organization ensued with a Philadelphia attorney, Gilbert , and his wife Eleanor. Through great difficulties with all the governments involved, these children were brought to the United States.
Dr. Erwin Tepper, a local resident of Monmouth County, and one of the 50 children, will be our guest speaker. He will present a video and PowerPoint to tell his story of survival and the difficulties his parents encountered so that he could be accepted for this opportunity.
This program is made possible in part by the Monmouth County Historical Commission through funding from the New Jersey Historical Commission of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
For more information or to make a paid reservation (non-refundable), call the Museum at 732-252-6990, or visit jhmomc.org. Maximum capacity is 100, so paid reservations are recommended.
