Eva Skrenta

Eva Skrenta moved to Columbia in 1974 drawn to the concept of a new town and an open, integrated community. She became active in the community through her homeowner’s association, politics and work at Columbia Medical Plan. Skrenta’s family emigrated to the United States after World War II. Skrenta talks about her father, Jerzy Kajetanski, a Holocaust survivor and an artist, his move to Columbia and her role in arranging local showings of his art and of his work being at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC.
