Join us for a special one-year anniversary of WEDU Wednesday where we'll reflect on the past year, share our vision for the future, and feature a special presentation by 3GNY treasurer and WEDU co-chair Farah Kraus.

Farah will share the story of her maternal grandmother, Eva Kostre, who was born in Trzcianne, Poland (Near Bialystok). As a teenager she miraculously survived Auschwitz and Ravensbruck and eventually resettled in the US in 1949. After surviving, Eva adopted "Every Day is a holiday" as her life philosophy. She shared these words often and encouraged everyone to live life to the fullest.


This WEDU Wednesday is in Honor of:
Eva & Harry Kostre
Sponsored by Iris & Harvey Kraus
