Homewood, AL

  Program Details: Ben Benninga was born in 1934 in Enschede, a small town in eastern Holland only five miles from the German border.  Ben and his family lived a quiet life until the Germans invaded on May 10, 1940.  By the time Benninga finished his first year in school in 1941, life for Jews had forever changed.  When roundups began, the Benninga family was forced into hiding.  All survived because of the sacrifice of others.  Benninga will share his family's wartime experience including the efforts of the Dutch resistance and the righteous who hid them during the German occupation of Holland.
  Fee: Free and open to the public.
  Other: This event is sponsored by the BHEC, Homewood Public Library, and the Henry Frohsin Family.
