Presented by Dr. Richard Freund of the University of Hartford

The amazing discovery of this unknown tunnel is a fascinating story of science, history and determination. In June, a team led by Freund discovered a 100-foot-long tunnel that 80 Jews dug by hand in a desperate attempt to escape extermination by the Nazis.

The program is suitable for high school students as well as members of our congregation and the general public.
