In commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day, Pearl “Peppy” Margolis, a Second-Generation Holocaust Survivor, will share the truly moving story of her parents, who defied the odds and survived the death camps, married in a displaced persons camp (where Peppy was born), and moved to America. “Since my parents could not talk, I was their voice".
Peppy Margolis currently works for the Stockton Center on Successful Aging at Stockton University, Galloway, NJ, planning and presenting programs for older adults. In 1984 she received a scholarship to study in Yad Vashem, Israel, and began a career in Holocaust education. Peppy wrote the first elementary curriculum in the US, which was endorsed by The NJ Commission on Holocaust Education. In the past, as the Director of the Raritan Valley Community College Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, she organized programs about The Holocaust. Peppy produced three films including “ The Second Generation, Ripples from The Holocaust,” which examines the challenges of being a Child of Survivors.
