Thirty Minutes with a 3G: Lizzie Westin of 3GDC
Lizzie Gelernter Westin was born and raised in La Paz, Bolivia and has lived in the DC area since college. She currently lives in Potomac, MD with her husband, son, and daughter. She is proud to have been one of the founding members of DC Young Leaders Chapter of HIAS (although it is no longer active in that format) and has been active with the Refugee Committee of her synagogue because of her family's own refugee history. She works in the Enterprise Data Platforms team at FINRA. In this episode, we explore Lizzie's grandparents' amazing escape from Nazi Europe to Bolivia, which was one of the few countries which welcomed Jews and happened to be home to some high profile Nazis after the war as well.

When not working on Shoah-related events, he is active at Sixth and I synagogue and with DC Jews on Bikes. He currently lives in the Petworth neighborhood of DC with his wife Karen.

He currently works as an analyst for the U.S. Department of Justice. In this episode, we discover that Matt is both a 2G and 3G (child and grandchild of Holocaust survivors); he knew from a young age that his parents escaped the Nazis but it took many years for him to use this background as a force for good in the community.
