WASHINGTON – The Atlanta Hawks toured the US Holocaust Memorial Museum accompanied by the survivor mother-in-law of the NBA team’s owner.

Players and most of the coaching staff, along with owner Bruce Levenson and General Manager Danny Ferry, made the visit to the Washington museum. They were joined by Irene Boyarsky, 85, who spent time in a Jewish ghetto in Hungary and a concentration camp in Austria. Two of her brothers were killed in the Holocaust, but Boyarsky was reunited with her parents at the end of World War II.

The group watched a short video of Boyarsky from her recorded history for the Shoah Foundation Institute’s visual history archive.
