Anneliese Winterberg Nossbaum: A Holocaust Survivor’s Story






“Peter Stern was born in Nuremberg, Germany in March 1936. His father, Artur, was an auto mechanic and a vocational school instructor. In 1941, his family was deported from Germany to a holding camp in Latvia that was surrounded by frozen water, though no fences, guards patrolled the perimeter. In the spring of 1942 they were transferred to the Riga ghetto and were crammed into a room with other families. In January 1944 the family was once again put on a truck and deported back to Germany where Artur was imprisoned in the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he died. Karolina, Sam, and Peter were transferred to Ravensbruck concentration camp and then, in the face of an Allied advance, moved to Bergen Belsen. They were liberated by the British on April 15th, 1945 and were moved to buildings previously occupied by German soldiers.”



*Due to medical circumstances, the previous speaker, Ms. Nossbaum, is unable to share her story. We wish her a smooth and speedy recovery.

Racial Justice Giving Circle

Apply to take part in our Racial Justice Giving Circle!

The Racial Justice Giving Circle is inspired by Jewish values for allies to explore
and support the fight for racial justice in America.
Members will participate in challenging conversations about race in America, through discussions of current events, personal experiences, readings, and optional outside events related to racial justice.

A giving circle is a group of friends, family or co-workers who come together to pool their charitable donations and decide together where to allocate their money. Through these discussions, the group will research and learn about nonprofit organizations doing work to address racial injustices and collectively decide where to donate the raised funds.

The Repair the World Giving Circle will meet four times. During the meetings, we will build community, learn together and collectively make decisions about how to address racial inequality.

The meetings will begin in mid-February.

The minimum donation to join the Giving Circle is $36 (if this is an obstacle, please reach out to [email protected] to discuss a lower minimum). Fundraising is optional.

Applications are rolling and close February 1st.
