Coffee with a Survivor: Second Generation Speaker Karen Gillett

May 26, 2021 @ 10:00 AM

Join us on May 26 to hear Second Generation Speaker Karen Schaap Gillett share her father, Klaus Schaap’s story and what he endured as a young boy during the Holocaust.

Karen, a daughter of two Holocaust survivors, joined the Museum in 2020, following in her mother’s footsteps as a docent and speaker. Growing up, Karen heard the sad and heart-wrenching stories of what both sides of her family endured during the Holocaust, learning the importance of teaching others the history and lessons of the Holocaust #neverforget.
