Presented by Georgia Highlands College Assistant Professor of Communication Alexandra MacMurdo Reiter and special guest Heidi Fishman. The presentation will focus on the heroic efforts of MacMurdo’s grandfather Stefan Ryniewicz during WWII. Ryniewicz, a Polish diplomat, was part of a covert group that forged passports to give to Jewish families. These passports ultimately saved thousands of Jews from the horrors of the Holocaust, including Heidi Fishman’s grandfather.
