Date and time


Waterloo Public Library

Waterloo, ON



Offered in English.


Bronislaw Huberman, Marcel Marceau, Ludviga Pukas, Princess Alice, Otto Weidt - names you may or may not know. These extraordinary individuals risked their lives to save the lives of hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust.

In an interactive one-hour virtual presentation and discussion, Kathy will help students understand what it took to be a rescuer at that dangerous time. She will talk about the lives of some of these brave individuals who stood apart from the crowd and demonstrated moral courage at a dangerous time in history. Kathy will remind audience members that rescuing even one Jewish person, or one family, meant saving the lives of generations to follow. For children ages 8 and up (Grade 3+).

Kathy Kacer has written a series of books based on real events to remind readers about the high price people paid to escape persecution, and the heroes who helped them.
