A free public reception for The Last Swiss Holocaust Survivors will be held at the Virginia Holocaust Museum on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, from 6 to 8 PM. Remarks will be held by special guest Mr. Simon Geissbühler, the Deputy Chief of Mission and Head of Political and Legal Affairs at the Embassy of Switzerland in the United States. This event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be provided.

The Last Swiss Holocaust Survivors is a powerful traveling exhibition that gives voice to the women and men who built a new life in Switzerland after surviving the Holocaust. Their astounding life stories are told to us by way of stirring, yet touching photographic portraits, witness testimonies, and video interviews.
