symbols_amnesty.png 3:00 PM  -  4:30 PM 12th Annual Kristallnacht Lecture: Agnes Vertes, Holocaust Survivor     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Leah Farrell   860-673-6791   lfarrell@farmingtonlibraries.org
   

Agnes Vertes was born Agnes Katz in Budapest, Hungary, in 1940. Germany occupied Hungary in March 1944; deportations of the nation's Jews began in May. Hungarian Jews represented about one half of all Jews murdered at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. First Agnes, her younger sister, and her mother lived with relatives in the countryside to escape the bombing. Then her father came for them. "Not one of those in the villages survived. If I stayed there I definitely would've been smoke," she says, referring to the crematoriums at Auschwitz. Soon after she and her sister returned to Budapest. A woman came and promised their parents she would keep the girls safe. Her presentation discusses how they were ultimately saved.

PLEASE REGISTER


Kristallnacht, also referred to as the Night of Broken Glass, was a series of coordinated attacks against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and parts of Austria on November 9-10, 1938. German authorities looked on as SA paramilitary and civilians carried out these attacks and covered the streets with broken glass from the windows of Jewish-owned stores, buildings, and synagogues. This annual event at the Farmington Libraries commemorates the human spirit’s ability to overcome such persecution.

Join us for an intimate afternoon concert in the beautiful Barney Library! Coffee and light refreshments will be served.

Sheri Miller has released two critically acclaimed EP’s, and several singles as a solo artist. Her first EP, “Mantra” featured the popular songs, “Right Here, Right Now” and “All He Has To Do,” which have been covered at thousands of weddings. The success of this EP helped land Sheri on Music Connection’s list of “Hot 100 Unsigned Artists,” and receive airplay on prestigious radio station KCRW. Her second EP, “Winning Hand,” was produced and mixed by Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel). One of Sheri’s singles, “I Could Love You Still,” produced by Will Lee, features the legendary Steve Cropper on guitar, Paul Shaffer on organ, Will on bass, Shawn Pelton on drums, and Tabitha Fair and Will on harmonies. Sheri also was a member of The Delilahs, a four-part vocal harmony group that signed with Sony Music, produced by Marcus Hummon (Dixie Chicks, Rascall Flatts).

Sheri has co-written songs with Grammy-Award winning songwriters J.D. Souther (Eagles), Al Anderson (NRBQ), Marcus Hummon, Jill Sobule, Shawn Mullins, Tony Scalzo (Fastball), Lauren Christy (The Matrix), Keith Follese (Katy Perry), Maia Sharp (Bonnie Raitt) and Kim Richey, among others.

Sheri has performed locally before Lady Gaga and Norah Jones, and showcased a songwriter night with Lana Del Rey. She’s toured internationally, playing theaters in Ramin Karimloo’s band, as a duet vocalist, background singer and guitarist, and was featured playing her original “I Could Love You Still” every night on this tour, solo acoustic.

Sheri is working on new recordings in LA, Nashville and NY, with Grammy winner Jeff Bova, Will Lee (Fab Faux), Tim Pierce (Bruce Springsteen), Aaron Sterling (Sara Bareilles), Dave Eggar (Coldplay), mixed by Joe Zook (OneRepublic) and legendary Frank Filipetti, mastered by Randy Merrill (Paul McCartney, Adele), to be released in 2019.

Join us for a whiff of the past, and create your own great-smelling herbal reed diffuser! 

Enjoy historical tidbits such as:

  • King Henry VIII had a festering leg wound that could be smelled from three rooms away
  • By the 1890s, there were approximately 300,000 horses and 1,000 tons of poop a day in London streets
  • During the eighteenth century, women shaved off their eyebrows and replaced them with false ones made from mouse fur
  • Baldness was “cured” by combining chicken droppings with potassium salts, and spreading it on balding areas

Next, learn about the medicinal benefits of various herbs and essential oils – including:

  • Cinnamon can help regulate blood sugar for diabetics
  • The Doctrine of Signatures tells us that eucalyptus cleanses “swampy” areas of the body, just as it cleanses malarial swamps
  • Rosemary has been recognized as a memory tonic since the ancient Egyptians, and is currently being studied for use in Alzheimer’s

Finally, create your own 8-ounce Herbal Reed Diffuser based on your preference/needs.

SPACE IS LIMITED. REGISTRATION REQUIRED.


When a zany teacher and sage herbalist join forces, they create Grounded Goodwife. Velya’s gregarious personality and Ehris’ grounded energy enable this mother/daughter team to connect with audiences. Funny and frank, the duo believe in taking inner responsibility for one’s wellness, and share their “recipe” for wholeness through workshops, presentations, and seminars.
