Adult Education

Transcending Darkness
A Girl’s Journey Out of the Holocaust

Estelle Glaser Laughlin survived the Warsaw Ghetto, the Uprising, and concentration camps. At eighteen she immigrated to America with only three years of public school education and earned a master’s degree in education. She had a long career in teaching and now, in retirement, writes and lectures about her experience and survival. Join us on Monday, February 10 at 7 p.m. for Estelle’s book event and discussion in the Culbertson Room.

Why do we need to listen to Estelle and refresh what we’ve learned about the Holocaust? Because when we do we are encouraged to take a stand against hatred, prejudice, and indifference. To see how Chicago Police are using Estelle’s message in an innovative way today, please watch the “Power of Dignity” video below.
