Wednesday, February 23, at 5:30 pm. In-person and virtual program via our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/TheFHM

Presented bilingually in English and Spanish

The FHM is honored to share a story of love between two friends who were miraculously reunited after 80 years, Betty Grebenschikoff and Ana María Wahrenberg. The last time Grebenschikoff saw Ana María Wahrenberg was in the spring of 1939, when they were 9 years old. They shared a tearful hug in a Berlin schoolyard before their families were forced to flee the country and the Nazis on the cusp of World War II. In a reunion facilitated by the USC Shoah Foundation, as well as The FHM and the Interactive Jewish Museum of Chile, the two women and their families reconnected in November 2020 on a Zoom call. Talking in their native German, they vowed to meet in person, and one year later, they finally did.

In 2020, Betty was reunited with her childhood friend Ana Maria through their individual testimonies, which had been filmed decades before. Betty recorded her Dimensions in TestimonySM interview in 2021, which will begin beta testing later this year. Seating is limited, please RSVP today by visiting www.TheFHM.org/events
