Hedy Epstein, Holocaust Survivor and Human Rights Activist, Speaks Out Against the Occupation of Palestine
Thursday, Oct 21, 6 pm, Lurias (Upper Sherman)
Jewish Voice for Peace
Students for Justice in Palestine
The Peace, Conflict, and Coexistence Studies Program
Hedy Epstein survived the Holocaust when her parents sent her from Nazi Germany to Britain on the Kindertransport. Since then, she has devoted her life to human rights causes from reproductive rights to immigration reform. She has made five visits to the West Bank, Palestine, and came close to boarding the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza. She is an outspoken critic of Israel’s military occupation of Palestine, and has become a well-known, controversial figure in the Israel-Palestine peace movement.
At Brandeis, Hedy will share stories from a life fighting injustice, advocating for an end to the occupation of Palestine.
All are welcome!
