The opportunity to hear the first-person account of a Holocaust survivor is often a once in a lifetime experience. Join us on November 18, as Manuela Mendels Bornstein shares her story.

This program is presented in cooperation with the Gwinnett Public Library.

This event is free to attend and open to the public. 

RSVP on the Facebook page.

Manuela Mendels Bornstein 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.
