Sylvie Hepner: Second Generation Holocaust Survivor

Mar 1st, 2020

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Today's talk has been Cancelled due to illness & rescheduled for March 15th at 1pm.

Sylvie Hepner is a second-generation survivor. Both her parents survived the Holocaust by hiding in France. She is a committed educator, having been a teacher and a school principal for the Calgary Board of Education, and continues educating through online teaching for the University of Calgary. She has two children and two grandchildren, with whom she enjoys playing, baking, and snuggling. After emigrating from France to Canada as a child, Sylvie encountered discrimination in Calgary. She works passionately to eradicate racism by recounting her family’s story of survival from the evil of Nazism.

Joining Sylvie for this presentation is her aunt, Minnie Segal. It is Minnie's late husband Marcel whose story Sylvie will be sharing. Prior to Sylvie's presentation, there will be a short musical performance of two original songs by students Jacklynn Moore & Jayce Nelson, and Kyla Hovila.
