Sinai Forum speaker will not appear in person


Organizers of the Sinai Forum announced this week that one of the forum’s scheduled speakers, Holocaust survivor Max Eisen, will not be able to appear in person, but an interactive biography of him will be presented instead.


“While we are disappointed to share that Max Eisen, an incredible educator, author and Holocaust survivor, is unable to join us for the Nov. 7 program, we are thrilled to bring his testimony to northwest Indiana audiences through the USC Shoah Foundation,” said Leslie Plesac, executive director of the forum.

The Eisen presentation will be made by Stephen D. Smith, executive director of USC Shoah Foundation, and Heather Maio-Smith, CEO of StoryFile, which originated the concept of interviewing Holocaust survivors interactively. These unique interviews give people opportunity to have conversational experiences with survivors of the Holocaust and other witnesses to history.
