Art Talk: Learn and Create Series: “Sigmund’s Sweets”
March 17, 2013 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location Three Brothers Bakery, 4036 S. Braeswood Blvd., Houston, TX 77025
Join Holocaust Museum Houston’s Next Generation for an afternoon at 3 Brothers Bakery with Holocaust survivor Sigmund Jucker, who will share his story, his family’s Polish baking traditions and lessons on how to make delicious hamentashen cookies. Jucker began baking in 1932 in Chrzanow, Poland at 10 years old alongside his twin brother, Sol. There was a baker’s strike so the twins filled in at the family bakery. Everything was truly handmade, since there were no mixers. The dough was placed in a trough, and everything was mixed by hand. Unfortunately, when Sigmund and Sol were 19 years old, the family was sent to Nazi concentration camps in 1941. On May 8th, 1945, Sigmund was released from the concentration camp. On Liberation Day, he was fortunate to have survived with his two other brothers and their older sister. On May 8th, 1949, Sigmund, Sol and their younger brother Max opened Three Brothers Bakery in Houston where they have been able to preserve the Polish baking traditions passed on for generations. As an outreach program of Holocaust Museum Houston, Next Generation is dedicated to promoting inclusion among individuals through preserving the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides and cultivating awareness of these lessons in contemporary society. Membership is open to all individuals age 21 to 39. Tickets are $15 for Next Generation members and $20 for nonmembers. Visit https://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to RSVP online. Please note: online registration is not refundable.
