SUSI’S GIFT: Theresienstadt Autograph Book

Theresienstadt Autograph Book

The Theresienstadt Autograph Book, belonging to Susi Deston’s first husband, Mænni Ruben, is being donated to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg for their Holocaust gallery. The book is in remarkable condition for being 75 years old!

Knowing the book would leave Victoria, a replica book with translations and additional notes has been created, along with a poster exhibit using pages from the book as illustrations.

On August 20 at 11 am PDT the Victoria SHOAH Project will host a live-stream launch of the exhibit and website, including local and international presenters, showcasing this important piece of history.

Please tune in – coordinates will be given next week.
