WAYNE, N.J. -- A Wayne Holocaust survivor will share his story of resistance on Tuesday, Nov. 15, from 1-3 p.m. at Temple Beth Tikvah.

Eric Mayer and his brother lived through the Nazi terror of Kristallnacht in Worms, Germany, as children.

Throughout Gernany, on Nov. 9–10, 1938, Nazi paramilitary forces and German civilians torched synagogues, vandalized Jewish homes, schools and businesses and killed close to 100 Jews. The name Kristallnacht comes from the shards of broken glass that littered the streets after windows were smashed.

Afterward, the brothers were sent to France, where they were hidden from the German occupying forces after the 1940 invasion.

Mayer went on to join the French Resistance as a courier.

Today he speaks of his experiences in schools, organizations and synagogues, striving to ensure the events of the Holocaust are never forgotten.

Mayer's talk is free-of-charge for members. Cost for nonmembers is $5.

The event is from 1 to 3 p.m. at the synagogue on Preakness Avenue.
