March 5-- On Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at 6:30 pm, Holocaust survivor Manuela Mendels Bornstein will visit Brewton-Parker College to share her story.

The opportunity to hear the first-person account of a Holocaust survivor is often a once in a lifetime experience. As such, BPC is excited to work in cooperation with The Georgia Commission on the Holocaust to host this free event and welcomes everyone in the public to attend.

bornsteinBornstein was born in Paris, France, to a Dutch father and a German mother. In July 1942, the French police concentrated 13,000 Jews in the Velodrome d'Hiver sports arena in Paris for days without food or water before deporting them to the Auschwitz-Birkenau killing center. Life for Manuela and her family changed dramatically when they narrowly escaped this major deportation through the help of some friends who were active members of the French resistance.

Join us during this special evening to hear more of her story and explore the upcoming library exhibit: “Fashioning a Nation: German Identity and Industry, 1914-1915.” While the exhibit will be on display for the public from March 4 – April 14, 2019, those who attend the program on March 5 will have the opportunity to explore the exhibit that evening.
