Holocaust survivor Steve Adler to speak in Lynnwood

Friday, May 20, 2016

On Sunday, June 5, Holocaust Survivor Steve Adler will present his incredible story of survival against all odds to the Lynnwood community.


Mr. Adler’s inspiring story takes the audience on a child's journey of exclusion and school bullying in Berlin, to an account of his family's harrowing Kristallnacht experience and its aftermath, to escape from Nazi persecution as a child selected for the Kindertransport (children’s transport).

Stephen (Steve) Adler was born in Berlin, Germany in 1930. He was the younger son in a middle-class, Jewish family. As conditions for the Jewish people worsened in Germany and throughout occupied Europe, Great Britain agreed to allow 10,000 Jewish children from Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia to immigrate to England via Kindertransport (children’s transport), leaving their families behind. Private citizens or organizations were required to guarantee to pay for each child's care, education, and eventual emigration from Britain. Parents or guardians could not accompany the children. In March 1939, Steve was sent by train to Hamburg to join a Kindertransport going to England by ship. Steve arrived in London knowing only one sentence in English.

Mr. Adler will be speaking at the Chabad Jewish Center of Snohomish County from 11am - 12:30pm on June 5. The address of the Center is 19626 76th Ave W, Lynnwood, WA. This event is free and open to the public.

Steve’s presentation is co-sponsored by the Holocaust Center for Humanity and the Chabad Jewish Center of Snohomish County.
