National WW2 Museum holds International Holocaust Memorial Day program

The National World War II Museum wil host a memorial program tomorrow, Saturday, January 27, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. CST to honor the memory of the millions of people killed in the Holocaust.

The International Holocaust Remebrance Day event will be held in the U. S Freedom Pavilion of the Boeing Center.


Holocaust survivor Eva P. Nathanson will be a featured speaker during the program. Nathanson was born in Budapest, Hungary, to an upper-middle-class Jewish family. After Germany invaded Hungary, Nathanson and her mother eventually went into hiding with the assistance of the resistance. When they were discovered, they were marched with many other Jews to the Danube River to be executed. Nathanson and her mother were pulled out of the river and brought to safety; they remained hidden until the end of the war. After the war, Nathanson’s mother remarried, and they lived in Hungary through the Hungarian Revolution in 1956.

Nathanson and her family immigrated to the United States in 1957.
