THE STORY BEHIND the SECRET MARRIAGE in SCHINDLER’S LIST | OCTOBER 29, 2015

The Catholic Center at NYU  hosted Clila and Hadasa Bau, daughters of Holocaust survivors Rebecca and Joseph Bau.
Rebecca and Joseph Bau are the original couple whose wedding is featured in the film, Schindler’s List. They met inside the Plashow Concentration Camp and Joseph smuggled himself, disguised as a woman, into the women’s camp so they could be secretly married. Joseph, an artist, and Rebecca, a nurse and beautician, worked secretly to save hundreds of lives. In 1950, Joseph went on to have a successful career as an artist, graphic designer, author and poet, including a book about the humor and logic in the Hebrew language. The Bau sisters will be speaking about the many extraordinary events that happened to their parents, during and after the Holocaust. It is a story of love, courage, hope, humor, and saving lives. They will also show some of Joseph’s art work. To learn more about them, visit: www.josephbau.com.
