Letters from Brno A Signature Lecture featuring Karen Kruger
Join us onboard the September 2 sailing of our Remarkable Rhine & Historic Holland for the opportunity to partake in a lecture series by Karen Kruger, the daughter of a Holocaust survivor. Karen’s story provides a profound and moving context to the histories you’ll encounter on this departure of one of our Jewish Heritage cruises.
“Letters from Brno” Screening with Q&A
Karen Kruger went on a 45-year quest to delve into her family history after discovering that her mother was one of the thousands of Jewish children who escaped Nazi-controlled territories through Kindertransport rescue efforts by Great Britain. The result: a documentary film, Letters from Brno.
