Valley Chabad to Host Holocaust Survivor Ita Lustig

(Courtesy of Valley Chabad) In response to recent antisemitism by influential people in American society, Valley Chabad’s Eternal Flame will be hosting an evening with Auschwitz survivor Itu Lustig.

Itu’s incredible story of survival in the Holocaust will make you cry, yet it will also make you sing. Born in Romania, when she was 12 years old the Nazis rounded up all the Jews in her town. Her parents and six siblings were all stuffed into the cattle going to Auschwitz.

Through Mengele’s selection process, getting a number tattooed on her arm, the death march and later Bergen-Belsen, she was the lone survivor of her entire family.

Today living in Brooklyn at 93, Itu is a proud great-great-grandmother filled with faith and a loving family. This Sunday she will turn 94 and is celebrating her birthday by sharing her incredible story with the teens and community of Woodcliff Lake. Join Valley Chabad this Sunday, Dec. 4, at 3:30 p.m. at Woodcliff Lake Hilton for a message of hope and perseverance.

If we don’t hear her story now, when will we?
