Chaja Verveer shared her story with a standing room only audience at the Friendswood Public Library. Her program was titled The Improbable Survivor: a young child in the Holocaust.
Verveer is a board member of the Houston Holocaust Museum and a commissioner on the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission. She has been invited to speak to a symposium on child survivors of the Holocaust in Europe at the invitation of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The library will have a DVD recording of the program available for check out in the coming month.
