Biography:

Prior to going into hiding, As World War 2 waged in Europe, Anne Frank befriended an Austrian refugee, 8-year-old Eva. Though both girls and their families were eventually deported to Auschwitz, their lives would remain forever intertwined, as step-sisters. Eva survived the horrors of Auschwitz, while Anne sadly perished.

When Otto Frank published his daughter’s diary, he could never have foreseen that this intriguing book would shed light onto those who had given it their all to survive and would give voice to the many who perished, and would inspire deep lessons of family, faith, and purpose.

Since 1985, Eva has devoted herself to Holocaust education and global peace. 

Eva has recounted her and Anne’s wartime experiences in more than one thousand speaking engagements. She has written two books and has had a play written about her life. In 1999 Eva signed the Anne Frank Peace Declaration along with United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan.

Her movie is in the running for Academy Award nomination.

This is a special opportunity to hear a first-hand account from someone whose life intersected with one of the most compelling figures in our history.
