SCW Friday at Emanuel
Holocaust Memorial Service
guest in the pulpit:

Chris Nicola
Topic: No Place On Earth:
The Story of Jews Who Survived the Holocaust in a Cave for More Than a Year


Friday, April 13, 2018 at 7:30pm

Chris Nicola was born in England in 1951. He and his family immigrated to the US, settling ultimately in New York City. In the Mid 70s Nicola began his life as an explorer by scuba diving in caves. He first heard, as a rumor in Ukraine 20 years ago, the above-mentioned story of Jewish survival. To date, he has confirmed this extraordinary story by locating 14 of the original 38 cave dwellers. He co-authored the book, “Secret of Priest’s Grotto,” which led to the making of “No Place On Earth,” a documentary about their experiences. Nicola runs the Priest’s Grotto Heritage Project, a genocide awareness project in which the grandchildren of those who lived in Priest’s Grotto Cave during the Holocaust work hand-in-hand with the grandchildren of those who lived above the cave  in building an exhibit to honor what those courageous 38 did so long ago. They are motivated by the hope that by keeping this story alive for future generations, they will help to prevent such genocides as the Holocaust from ever happening again.
The Emanuel Holocaust Memorial Service is conducted by Rabbi Robert S. Widom and Cantor Jonathan Guss, accompanied by violin, flute, bass and organ. Admission is free.
