An Evening of Inspiration and Learning
Community Ed. Holocaust Event
Holocaust Survivor and Author Anita Dittman Shares Her Inspiring Story of Survival & Hope
Monday, October 17th
6:30pm – 8:00pm
The Loft Stage at ERHS
Anita Dittman was just a little girl when the winds of Hitler and Nazism began to blow through Germany. By the time she was 12, the war had begun. Abandoned by her father when he realized the price of being associated with a Jewish wife and family, Anita and her mother were ultimately left to fend for themselves. Anita’s teenage years were spent desperately fighting for survival, yet learning to trust the One she discovered would not leave her. Anita’s book, “Trapped in Hitler’s Hell” is described as “shocking and disturbing, yet hopeful and inspiring … an incredible story you will never forget.”
