On Sunday evening, October 16, 2011 3Gs gathered together in Congregation Kehilath Israel’s Sukkah for an evening of stories and discussion.  Hansjoerg (Hans) Stern, an Austrian survivor, spoke to the group about his family’s escape to Switzerland during WWII and his war years spent living in India.  He also spoke about his recent efforts, in conjunction with a researcher from the University of Salzburg, to uncover the restitution efforts of the Austrian government and Austrian banks.  The evening ended with a discussion about Europe and the various opportunities available for travel to these remarkable places.
