About the event

The Memorial Service will be held on Zoom (for participants) and simultaneously live-streamed on Temple Emanuel's official Facebook page for all others.

Hank Brodt, a longtime and much-beloved member of Temple Emanuel was originally from Boryslaw, Poland. He was born on December 1, 1925, and spent his teen-aged years in five Nazi prison camps and a forced labor camp, including Plashov, Matthausen, and Ebensee from which he was liberated on May 6, 1945, by the troops of the US 80th Infantry Division.

From the time he moved to Greensboro almost 15 years ago, he served as an educator and a witness to his experiences during World War II. He has given testimony to the Steven Spielberg project and has worked closely with the NC Holocaust Commission. He has spoken before many Jewish and non-Jewish groups and was a wonderful singer, singing at services and elsewhere. He participated in numerous March of the Living trips - one with adults only, and the rest with teens and adults. After he became a United States Citizen, he served in the US Army during the Korean war.  He will be sorely missed by many.
