Event Details

The JCC Denver and Mizel Arts and Culture Center are proud community partners for the 40th year of ADL’s Mountain States Region’s Governor’s Holocaust Remembrance Program, one of the largest such events in the United States. This year’s featured speaker is Holocaust Survivor Judith Altmann. Judy, who is 96 years old, was born in Jasina Czechoslovakia, which was invaded by the Nazis in 1939 when she was a teenager. In 1944, Judy was arrested and taken to Auschwitz. Out of 24 family members , only she and her niece and nephew survived. Judy survived two forced labor camps despite a catastrophic injury, and survived the 150-mile “death march” that ended in the Bergen Belsen concentration camp.  Sick with typhus, Judy was barely alive when she was liberated by the British Army in 1945. After living for a short time in Sweden, Judy immigrated to the United States in 1948.
