Rist Hall, Mercy High School 3250 19th Ave. San Francisco, CA 94132 Thursday, November 7, 2019 4:00 - 6:00 pm

With Special Guests Paul Schwarzbart and Jose Artiga

This year’s program features a Jewish survivor of the Holocaust and World War II (Paul) along with a Salvadoran survivor of the Death Squads and Civil War (Jose). Each will recount their migration stories which ultimately brought them to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Following Paul and Jose’s testimonies, we will have breakout groups led by students from Mercy and Stuart Hall. The event will end with a “found poem” and performance.

 

Refreshments provided. This is a free inter-school event. All are welcome.
