What To Do This Weekend 2.21-2.23

Friday, February 21st

CANDLES continues its Next-Generation Speaker Series, hosting Sharie Fields on Friday, February 21st, 2020.

Sharie Field’s maternal grandmother, Nellie (1916-1985), and mother, Esther (b. 1941) were Polish Jews and the only two people from their large family to survive World War II. Sharie will share stories of how they survived the war and their time spent in a Displaced Person’s camp in Germany before immigrating to America in 1949. She will share stories of her Ukrainian grandfather, Louis, also a WWII survivor and of her paternal grandfather, Sam, who served as an interpreter in the Nuremberg trials following the war. Sharie Fields sheds light on her family’s long-silenced stories of WWII while attempting to convey the impact these events still have on us today and suggest paths to combat intolerance.

Sharie is a nurse at St. Vincent and lives in Carmel, IN with her husband and two children. She became inspired to tell her family’s story after witnessing the impact her parents have made through the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis’ Speakers Bureau. She hopes that by continuing the work of Holocaust education she can make contributions, alongside others who share their stories, to honor and remember the past so that we can be upstanders in the face of atrocities and injustice in the present.

This event is open to the public. For more information about this and other CANDLES programs, call 812.234.7881 or email programs@candlesholocaustmuseum.org.
