Guelph Hillel hosts an open Shabbat dinner with guest speaker Dr. Bernd Wollschlaeger.
Dr. Wollschlaeger’s book “A German Life: Against All Odds Change is Possible” describes his struggle growing up in Germany in the shadow of his father, a highly-decorated WWII tank commander and Nazi officer. He eventually converted to Judaism, emigrated to Israel and served in the Israel Defense Forces as a Medical Officer.
The topic of this dinner will be “Against All Odds, Change Is Possible”.
Holocaust Education Week runs Nov. 6 – 10.
