Holocaust Survivor Lecture (link)
|Date:||Tuesday, April 17th|
Michael Bornstein, one of the youngest known survivors of the Auschwitz death camp, and his daughter, TV news producer and co-author Debbie Bornstein Holinstat, will join us for a special talk and book signing (books will be available for sale). Through a series of photos, recently discovered documents, and memories shared, father and daughter relate the story of how a father’s courageous wit, a mother’s fierce love, and one perfectly timed illness saved Michael’s life during the Holocaust. Listeners will undoubtedly recognize the iconic photo of a four-year-old Bornstein at liberation, but few people knew of the miracles behind his survival until he and his daughter released their narrative non-fiction bestseller "Survivors Club" in March.
