From the Warsaw Ghetto to a Life of Compassion

Posted on November 09, 2017 by The VRG Blog Editor

Alex Hershaft is one of the few remaining voices who can personally and vividly attest to the experience of the Holocaust. And he is one of the only such voices who can undeniably relate that experience to the plight of farm animals.

Alex has told his dramatic story in front of large crowds in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, New York City and most recently Philadelphia. This will be an opportunity to experience his presentation in Washington D.C.

Tickets include:
•A reception with delicious vegan hors d’oeuvres.
•Alex’s presentation about his moral evolution from Holocaust survivor to farm-animal advocate.

“As a Holocaust survivor with a riveting and inspirational personal story, he adds to that a unique and incredibly powerful perspective and voice on the rights of animals not to be raised for food. I wish everyone could hear the presentation that I did.” — Richard Levin, attendee, “From the Warsaw Ghetto to a Life of Compassion,” May 15, 2015, Baltimore, MD.
