Description

Robert Ratonyi will be speaking as part of The Breman Museum's oral history event series titled Bearing Witness: Remarkable Stories from the Holocaust.

Robert Ratonyi remembers a childhood scarred by fear, upheaval, hunger and loss. He was six years old when forced to wear a yellow star and face the terrors of war and ghetto life without his parents, both of whom were deported to concentration camps. He grew up under communist dictatorship and escaped Hungary following the bloody uprising of 1956. A graduate of MIT and Drexel University, Robert went on to a successful business career.

Guided tours of our Holocaust Gallery will be given at 12:30 p.m. Tours are capped at 75 persons in total, on a first-come, first served basis. While the tour is in session, the Holocaust Gallery will be closed from 12:30 to 2 p.m.
