Wednesday, May 1, 6:45 pm, Temple Israel

Join the community for an evening to honor local Holocaust survivors and remember the six million Jews who were murdered during the Shoah, as well as to hear Dr. Roger Loria’s harrowing experience of escape and survival.

Dr. Loria is a professor emeritus and researcher at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, Va. Following many coincidences and close calls, Loria and his mother, Dina, managed to escape deportation “to the East” and eventually walked into Switzerland, just before his fourth birthday.

Temple Israel is located at 7255 Granby Street, Norfolk.
