Event description

Description

Manuela Mendels Bornstein was born in Paris to a Dutch father and German mother. In July 1942, the French police concentrated 13,000 Jews for days without food or water before deporting them to the Auschwitz-Birkenau killing center. Manuela and her family narrowly escaped through the help of friends who were active members of the French resistance. Life was never the same again.

The opportunity to hear the first-person account of a Holocaust survivor is often a once in a lifetime experience. Join Gwinnett Library, in partnership with the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust, as Mrs. Bornstein shares her story. This event takes places Sunday, November 18 at 3:00 pm at the Peachtree Corners City Hall Ballroom, 310 Technology Parkway NW, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092. This program is recommended for grades five and up and is free and open to the public.
