The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), West Morris Section, plans to sponsor a special talk by Ruth Ravina, a survivor of the Holocaust, at a guided, docent-led tour of the “Women in the Holocaust” photo exhibit at the JCC on Route 10 East in Whippany. The event is set to take place at 7 p.m., on Tues., April 26.
NCJW, West Morris Section is inviting sixth-graders and their teachers from all Morris County public, private and parochial schools to attend this talk and tour of the exhibit.
Ravina owes her life to both Jewish and non-Jewish rescuers. Before she got to the concentration camp where her mother and cousin were transported, Ravina was saved by three young girls who escaped from a ghetto when they learned it would be liquidated. A toddler at the time, Ruth was then rescued by a Polish family.
