Sparks, a series of events aimed to spark children’s imagination. Sparks is supported by Shepherds.

Many Jewish families fled Austria after the German invasion of 1938; among those emigrants who moved first to Belgium and then to Holland was Eva Schloss, who was to become Anne Frank’s step-sister. Betrayed and sent to Auschwitz, Eva and her mother survived the war to be liberated by the Russians. Join Eva as she recounts her experience of life during and after the Holocaust.
