Join us for the Holocaust Legacy Foundation Gideon Klein Presentation by Andie Weiner, part of Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Week at Northeastern University.

This exhibit tells the story of one family’s bravery in hiding a Jewish baby and another family’s pain of separation. Through photographs, artifacts and narration, Andie Weiner explores the rise of antisemitism in the Netherlands during World War II, the role of women during the Holocaust and the legacy of storytelling.

Andie Weiner is the 2023-2024 Holocaust Legacy Foundation Gideon Klein Scholar. A fourth-year theater and psychology major, Andie is devoted to spreading awareness about the Holocaust through storytelling and education.

Presented by the Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Week Committee, the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, the Jewish Studies Program and the Humanities Center. Supported by the Holocaust Legacy Foundation.
