Resilience: A Holocaust Survivor Reflects on Life During the Pandemic

In spring of 1941, the Germans invaded Soviet-occupied Poland, forcing Jews into ghettos a few months later. In fall of 1942, Toby Levy and her family went into hiding until June 1944 when they were liberated by the Red Army. Today, Ms. Levy, a retired accountant and a volunteer docent for the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City, remains hopeful that the COVID-19 pandemic will not steal her last years just as the Holocaust stole her youth. Join Ms. Levy on January 26, for a special conversation in the lead up to International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Read Ms. Levy’s powerful, poignant, and timely opinion piece in The New York Times here.
