Excerpt from Galt Museum Archives - Jan 27-Apr 29, 2007
AUSCHWITZ
the Eva Brewster Story

In celebration of Hitler's birthday [April 20 1943], 1000 young Jews were transported to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp on April 20, 1943.

21-year old Eva Brewster, her husband, baby daughter and mother were among that transport. Her husband and baby daughter, along with 991 others, did not survive...they were among the estimated 1.5 million people who died at Auschwitz-Birkenau between 1940 and 1945.

Settling in southern Alberta after the war, Eva's life became dedicated to exposing the horrors of the Shoah [the Holocaust] that it might not ever happen again. Her award-winning book, Vanished in Darkness, and this exhibit continue that promise.
