In Heroic Children, Rabbi Hanoch Teller chronicles the extraordinary stories of nine children who experienced the horrors of the Holocaust. Rabbi Teller will be joined by Dr. Michael Thaler, president of the Holocaust Center of Northern California from 1982 to 1993, who was one of only three children who survived the ghetto in Brzezany, Poland.

Rabbi Hanoch Teller, a modern-day maggid (storyteller), is the author of 28 books and the writer and producer of two documentaries: Do You Believe in Miracles? and Reb Elimelech and the Chassidic Legacy of Brotherhood. For three decades, Rabbi Teller has been a senior docent at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem. Born in Vienna and raised and educated in America, he lives in Jerusalem and studies in the Mirrer Yeshiva.

Co-presented by Congregation Beth Sholom and Congregation Chevra Thilim.
