A Story of Courage and Compassion
With Speaker and Author Marty Brounstein

Doors open at 6:30 for Special Display
Interfaith CommUNITY Spiritual Center and The Shrine of Holy Wisdom are pleased to co-host this special event with San Francisco Bay Area storyteller Marty Brounstein, author of Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust. 

He brings a true interfaith story of courage, compassion, and rescue about a Christian couple in the Netherlands named Frans and Mien Wijnakker who, despite much risk and danger, saved the lives of over two dozen Jews during World War II. Marty
also has a meaningful personal connection to this story and its heroes, which he reveals in his engaging and inspirational storytelling presentation.

Now into its 7th year, Marty has been on an unexpected journey of sharing this story in over a dozen other cities around the country, including his 7th year in the Valley. 

A book signing follows the presentation.

SPECIAL DISPLAY: See Fr. Jorge Eagar’s collection of
relics from Christian dissidents against the Nazi regime.
