The evening will open with an intimate interview, conducted by Ruth Litwin, Chair of the Healthy Aging Committee at Jewish Silicon Valley.

About Saul Dreier: Saul, a Holocaust survivor from Poland, moved to Florida after World War II. At age 89, he decided to start the Holocaust Survivor Band, a klezmer band to keep alive the music he grew up with, and through the music, to memorialize those who perished in the Holocaust. Joined by Ruby Sosnowicz, also a Holocaust survivor from Poland, the band was invited to play around the world. A documentary of this amazing journey has been shown at many film festivals including the Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival (SVJFF) in 2020. Click here to view the trailer.
