ST. PETERSBURG — Holocaust survivor Rena Finder will speak at the Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg on Monday.
An only child, Finder was born in 1929 in Krakow, Poland, and lived an idyllic life with her parents until September 1939. Her family was forced out of its home and her father was arrested and later killed at Auschwitz. She and her mother worked in a printing shop until the day they were put on a list to work in Oskar Schindler’s enamel and ammunition factory. Finder has said that it was like "going from hell to heaven."
Finder’s talk, hosted by the Chabad Jewish Center of Greater St. Petersburg, will begin at 7:30 p.m., at the Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N. Tickets are $18. Go to ChabadSP.com or call (727) 344-4900.
