Fred Marcus lecture features play on heroine Miep Gies

Fred Marcus lecture features play on heroine Miep Gies

The 12th annual Fred Marcus Memorial Holocaust Lecture will be Sunday, Oct. 26, 2-4 p.m., at the Loup JCC Wolf Theatre.

This year’s guest, Judy Winnick, will present her original one-act, one-person play, “Miep Gies: A Beacon of Hope.”

In her diary, Anne wrote, “It seems as if we are never far from Miep’s thoughts.”
