Holocaust Story from Second Generation

Featuring Lili Chester & Sylvia Fine

Wednesday, June 12

Lili Chester and Sylvia Fine are sisters whose parents were both Holocaust survivors from

Lodz, Poland. In 2009 they produced the award winning short documentary film “But Some

Survive – Esther’s Story” that recounts their mother’s harrowing tale of survival.

They will show the film and discuss their role as members of the “second generation.”

Their mother Esther Latarus’ testimony is part of the USC Shoah Foundation archive and their

father Berek Latarus’ story is included in the book Witness to the Holocaust – Stories of

Minnesota Holocaust Survivors and Liberators.

Lili Chester is the writer for the exhibit “Transfer of Memory” currently on display at the

Anderson Center.
