Holocaust Remembrance Night with Selma Rossen

Last night, in conjunction with the Rowan Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Rowan Hillel held Holocaust Rembrance night.  After a short service held to commemorate those we lost, we were honored to hear the story of Selma Rossen, who survived the Holocaust while growing up in Poland.  A crowd of around 100 people listened to the story of Selma’s family and their survival while escaping the Nazi’s.

Selma is the proud Grandmother of Hillel Treasurer Alex Rossen.
