Daughter of Auschwitz

October 6 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm


Tova Friedman was just two years old when she and her family were seized by the Nazis. They sent her to Auschwitz at the age of five, where they shaved her head and tattooed her arm. Tova survived a trip to the gas chamber and, with her mother, outwitted roving killing squads. The Nazis would go on to murder 150 members of their family. But Tova and her parents lived, and later immigrated to the United States.

Now a highly trained educator, therapist, public speaker, writer, and TikTok sensation (thanks to her grandson, Aron), Tova honors the victims by sharing her difficult memories of the Holocaust. Join her in conversation with Corinne Stavish for this extraordinary Storytelling Studio. 

This program is part of ISC’s Legacy Series, which raises the voices of Americans whose lives have helped shaped history. This year’s event is made possible by Wallace and Catherine Shealey.
