Red Bench with Eva Schloss, Holocaust Survivor
One of the last touring survivors of the Holocaust is coming to Austin to speak of her World War II death camp experiences and the consequences of indifference to injustice during three days of events planned for the community, an interfaith group and middle and high school students. Eva Schloss, step-daughter to Otto Frank and step-sister of Anne Frank.
The Red Bench is an ongoing dialogue program designed to address one of the most pressing needs of our time: improving interfaith understanding and civil discourse in our society.
Each conversation is centered on moderated small group discussions that are genuinely respectful and safe. No one has to be an expert. Individual participants are invited to share from their personal experiences and listen with their hearts. The format is structured and allows each individual to be heard.
As part of the Interfaith Action of Central Texas, Schloss will participate in table discussions from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 24, at Congregation Agudas Achim, 7300 Hart Lane, Austin. Her appearance is part of the Red Bench, a local program to improve interfaith understanding and civil discourse.
