Translating White House in a Grey City, by Itzchak Belfer
Organized by: Chavaya Fellows
EVENT DATE Jul 28, 2015
You are cordially invited to attend a private fundraising event on Tuesday July 28th Presented By The International Initiative of Chavaya Fellowship, featuring Live Music, Gallery Exhibitions, Presentations, Sushi Banquet, and an Open Bar, all for an incredibly heart-warming cause!
Amid the chaos of the Second World War in Germany, one man named Janusz Korczak, established a Jewish orphanage. This man, who was a non-Jew, chose to save as many Jewish children as he could and then perish with the remaining children in the gas chambers even though he was told he could live because he was not Jewish. Today, only one of his students lives. His name is Itzchak Belfer , and he wrote a book called White House in a Grey City, in which he tells the story of his childhood experiences with his teacher and muse during the horrific period. This groundbreaking work is currently only available in Hebrew, but with your help, will be translated into English and German.
