Stories of Survival: Bluma Shapiro

Survivor Bluma Shapiro with special live Crankie performance by Maura Roth-Gormley

Sunday, March 12, 1:00 pm

Included with museum admission – Get Your Tickets Now

Museum Members – Reserve Your Seats




We are fortunate to live in a community where many Holocaust survivors have made it their mission to share their stories with both adult and student audiences.  We are privileged to welcome two survivors to JMM while Remembering Auschwitz is on view. Join us to hear the personal testimonies of these extraordinary women.



Bluma Shapiro is a Polish Holocaust survivor whose Holocaust experiences included confinement with her family in a ghetto, slave labor and deportation to several concentration and death camps including Auschwitz.


Ms. Shapiro’s testimony will be illuminated by Maura Roth-Gormley who will use a Crankie, an old storytelling form originally designed to be a portable form of entertainment used by traveling artists, to help share her story.


Join us on Sunday, May 7th at 1:00pm for the second in our Stories of Survial Series with Golda Kalib.




The public programs for this project were made possible by a grant from Maryland Humanities, through support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

BIYA Purim crop

The Spice Girls are reuniting. Old school Nintendo is selling tons of units. There was an ‘N Sync reference during a Super Bowl ad. Oh yes, the 90’s are, like, totally in.

Join B’nai Israel Young Adults on Saturday evening, March 11th for our annual Purim party as we go all out for everything 90’s! Wear your best 90’s gear: choker necklaces, Starter jackets, Air Jordans, flannel shirts, slap bracelets, cargo pants, L.A. Lights or just simply part your hair down the middle. If you can memorize your best boy band dance and perform it, that’d be da bomb.

The party will be all that and a bag o’ chips: OPEN BAR, 90’s jams all night, Purim nosh and plenty of 90’s nostalgia

7:30pm: Megillah Reading
