The Tennessee State Museum hosts a wide range of FREE, fascinating events and educational programs throughout the year. Advance reservations are not required, unless indicated on the listing. For seated events, seats are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
In partnership with the Tennessee Holocaust Commission, the Museum welcomes holocaust survivor, Frances Hahn, in conversation with Tennessee State Museum curator, Brigette Jones. Hahn will share her own experiences as a refugee who immigrated to Tennessee. Participants will have an opportunity to ask both Ms. Jones and Ms. Hahn questions at the end of the program.
Frances Cutler Hahn was born Fanny Lindenberg Kahane on March 16, 1938 in Paris, France. Her parents, Schlomo Zalman Kahane and Cyla Lindenberg, came to Paris in 1936 from Poland. When Fanny was three, her parents placed her in a children’s' home prior to their own arrests. Cyla Kahane was deported on Convoy 11 from Drancy to Auschwitz in 1942, where she was murdered. After her father was warned that Fanny would soon be deported, he moved her to live with a Catholic family on a farm, where she remained until the end of the war. At the end of the war, Schlomo Kahane died in a hospital of tuberculosis. Fanny moved to several orphanages before immigrating to the United States with the assistance of HIAS, where she was adopted.
