Holocaust survivors share stories of Nazi horror, postwar lives

In Hanover, New Jersey, Holocaust survivors Gina Lanceter, Jean Gluck, Toby Fluek and Malvina Lefkowitz shared their stories of the Holocaust and life after at the Alex Aidekema Jewish Community Center. Most of the women were only barely in their teens when they had to endure Nazi oppression.

However, after the war ended, in 1945, each woman had her unique story about how she picked up the pieces to begin life anew in the wake of the horrors they endured. While each endured nightmarish cruelty, there is a story of strength of hope and action to bring that about.

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
