Please join us to hear from Michael Bornstein, one of the youngest survivors of the Auschwitz death camp, and his daughter, Debbie Bornstein, co-author of “Survivors Club: The True Story of a Very Young Prisoner of Auschwitz.”
In 1945, in a now-famous piece of World War II archival footage, 4-year-old Michael Bornstein was filmed by Soviet soldiers as he was carried out of Auschwitz in his grandmother’s arms. “Survivors Club” tells the unforgettable story of how a father’s courageous wit, a mother’s fierce love and one perfectly timed illness saved his life, and how others in his family from Zarki, Poland, dodged death at the hands of the Nazis time and again with incredible deftness.
Working from his own recollections, as well as extensive interviews with relatives and survivors who knew the family, Michael relates his inspirational Holocaust survival story with the help of his daughter, Debbie Bornstein Holinstat.
Light appetizers and soft drinks will be served.
