Auschwitz Survivor of Romania: Stefania Hecht
Auschwitz survivor Stefania Hecht inspired Rebeca Zoicas, an international student from Romania living in Staten Island, New York to make a short documentary film. The film follows Stefania’s story from where she grew up in the northern part of Romania (then part of Hungary), to Auschwitz and a work camp in Czechoslovakia and finally to New York City.

Dr. Alex Hecht, Stefania’s son, who founded the Northern Transylvania Holocaust Museum in 2005 to promote Holocaust education and Dan Glasman, Stefania's grandson, will join the discussion. The event will be moderated by author Roberta Seret, who will introduce her most recent book set in Transylvania during and after World War II.
