The Holocaust Documentation & Education Center (HDEC) is pleased to share “Commemorating Yom HaShoah Through Arts and the Words of Survivors” from Temple Beth El of Boca Raton.

This special event features our Holocaust Survivor Norman Frajman, who was born in Warsaw, Poland. Norman is a Survivor of Majdanek, Skarzysko, and Buchenwald. He is an active and treasured participant in our Educational Outreach Programs such as Speakers Bureau, and Student Awareness Days, and serves as a member of our Executive Board.

Artist Wilma Bulkin Siegel, M.D. had a distinguished career as a prominent Oncologist in New York City, where she was a pioneer establishing one of the first Hospices in the state of New York. The Hospice was one of the first to accept AIDS patients, and Dr. Siegel was asked to give her expertise on AIDS to the Presidential Commission in Washington in her capacity as Medical Director of that Hospice. In April 2009, she was awarded the highest honor for her contribution to the arts in Heathcare “Janice Palmer Award of Society of Arts in Healthcare”. Dr. Siegel’s watercolors are inspired by “the human being… as a wonder of nature”. To learn more about Dr. Siegel you can visit her website here.

Our President, Rositta E. Kenigsberg, who is a Second Generation, born in the Bindermichl Displaced Persons (DP) Camp in  Austria is also participating in this Yom HaShoah program and will be sharing memories of her beloved father, Holocaust Survivor, Henryk Ehrlich z”l, as well as our work at the HDEC.
