Breaking the Silence – Stories of Courage from our Elders
Presented in Partnership with Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education
Free and open to the public, RSVP encouraged

Four speakers will talk about their lives during and after the Second World War. Moderated by Linda Tamura of Willamette University, the conversation will focus on the role storytelling plays in the healing process after trauma. The panelists will connect their experiences with the war and their later decisions to begin public speaking. One of the speakers, George Nakata lived in a Japanese American concentration camp in Idaho during World War II. A second speaker, Taka Mizote, spent the war years in farm labor camps in eastern Oregon. The other two speakers, Les and Eva Aigner, survived the Second World War in Europe then lived through political unrest in Hungary before emigrating to America.
