Elysée Treaty and Hélène Berr Exhibit Reception
Join us as we celebrate the the 51st Anniversary of the Elysée Treaty and inauguration of our latest exhibit at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta – “Hélène Berr: A Stolen Life.”
The Honorable Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Christoph Sander and the Honorable Consul General of the French Republic, Denis Berbet, along with the Alliance Française, Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta, Mémorial de la Shoah, and Georgia Commision on the Holocaust invite you to a reception to celebrate the event.
Remarks will be given by:
- Denis Barbet, Consul General of Frane to the U.S. Southeast
- Christoph Sander, Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Atlanta
- Hélène Courault-Touré, Executive Director of Alliance Française d’Atlanta
- Miriam Bruns, Executive Director of the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta
- Jaques Fredj, Executive Director of Mémorial de la Shoah
- Sally N. Levine, Executive Director of the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust.
Berr serves as a symbol of strength, hope, and courage, as a woman and writer who helped others and resisted defeat until her death. This tragic destiny was shared by many other Jewish women who were deprived of a normal life and prevented from fulfilling their potential.
The exhibition, curated by Karen Taieb and Sophie Nagiscarde, was designed, created and circulated by Mémorial de la Shoah (Paris).
We look forward to seeing you there!
