We are honored to have Max Michelson, Newton resident and Holocaust survivor, as a special guest speaker at this year’s Holocaust Remembrance program. Max is the author of a memoir City of Life, City of Death, Memories of Riga, which describes his childhood and youth in pre-World War II Latvia, and tells of his experiences during the Holocaust. It is an ode to his lost family; it is the speech of their muted voices and a thank you for their love.  The program begins with services at 7:30 pm followed by Max’s talk.  His book will be available for purchase.
