At age 10, Cathy Friedman learned about the Holocaust at the temple. She was shocked and asked her mother how something that horrific could happen.

“My mother looked at me with tears streaming down her face and said, ‘I dreaded the day one of my three kids would ask me about that. I knew it would be you.’ I will never forget that day,” Friedman said.

On Aug. 20, Friedman will be honored at the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Alys Stephens Center for her work with the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center (BHEC) at an event dubbed L’Chaim. The event will feature the Steel City Men’s Chorus and musical entertainment arranged by Keith Cromwell, executive director of Red Mountain Theatre Company. “L’Chaim means ‘to life’ in Hebrew,” said Friedman, a BHEC board member and its vice president of Development. “We’re extremely excited about the program and it’s really where we let Alabama know what the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center is about.”
