Cleveland-Bratislava Sister Cities October Meeting
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Program: Return to a Burning House is a video documentary of the life of Haviva Reick born in the Slovakian village of Nadabula ( now a part of Roznava), in Czechoslovakia. She was of Jewish ancestry and escaped the Nazis and fled to Palestine in 1939. There in 1944, she was recruited by British Special Operations and the Palmach to return to Slovakia to support the Slovak National Uprising against the Nazis and to help Jews, as well as British and American pilots, escape the country. She was captured near Banska Bystrica by the Nazis and executed, sacrificing her life for the greater good.
