The Holocaust Memorial Center (www.holocaustcenter.org) hosts a public ceremony dedicating The Henrietta and Alvin WeisbergGallery, a new addition that will house an authentic World War II-era boxcar. The Nazis used boxcars to transport millions of European Jews and other victims to concentration camps and their deaths during the Holocaust.


A generous gift from local philanthropists Henrietta and Alvin Weisberg funded construction of this new gallery, which was built in memory of Henrietta’s family murdered in the Holocaust, her parents, Sara and Israel Gastfrajnd, and brothers, Rubin and Hershel Gastfrajnd.  This gift also is being used toward an education endowment.
