Virtual Talk: A New Life - The Story of a Holocaust Refugee Family in New York

Monday, July 26, 2021, 7:30–8:30 pm


Dr. Annie Polland (president, Lower East Side Tenement Museum) takes us on a virtual tour of the recreated home of the Epstein Family in the 1950s, where Kalman and Rivka Epstein lived as refugees after surviving the Holocaust. Explore how they raised their two daughters, Bella and Blima in New York City, and how they and their daughters found support, friendship, and discovery in an increasingly diverse Lower East Side neighborhood.
