Kristalnacht Commemoration: Schindler’s Listed
Come hear Dr. Mark Biederman as he shares his extraordinary story of the 20-year quest to find gold coins which his father’s family buried in their backyard in Poland before being deported by the Nazis.
His father survived the war but died when Mark was a teenager, leaving him only with the knowledge that his father had buried the coins somewhere in Poland.
During his quest Mark uncovered many interesting and disturbing facts about his parents; his father was the third person on Oskar Schindler’s list and had a chance meeting with Adolph Hitler – while his mother was selected as a cook for the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele.
