The Eva Brewster Story

The Eva Brewster Story

is presently being exhibited at the Esplanade here in Medicine Hat until June 29. Yesterday, May 1, which is Yom HaShoah—Holocaust Remembrance Day—I visited this deeply moving exhibition. Eva, along with her mother survived two years of hell in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp—and years later published a memoir entitled: Vanished in Darkness. Tragically, her first husband and their young daughter died in the camp. This exhibit is a fulfillment of Eva’s promise to her mother that she would work for the remainder of her life to continue to keep the history of the Holocaust alive. Thank you to the Galt Museum in Lethbridge, The Sons of Abraham in Medicine Hat, The Southern Alberta Jewish Historical Society, and the Esplanade for sponsoring this exhibition. May God protect the Jewish people from this ever happening to them again! You can read more about this exhibition here.
