Displaced Persons in the Soviet Union During World War II

Length: 2 hrs 00 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

During World War II the Soviet Union put into effect several strategies to get rid of “enemies of the state,” including the forced deportation of thousands of Jews into labor camps in the harsh climate of Siberia. Many were not able to survive; the parents of speaker Louis Beck were among the fortunate ones. This evening will seek to inform about a piece of history often neglected when discussing the atrocities of the Holocaust.
