For seventy years, Holocaust survivor Michael Bornstein chose to stay silent about his story. He spotted the photo of his four-year old self on book covers, museum walls and even in news footage used on major news networks every year as they acknowledged Holocaust Remembrance Day. Yet he was nervous about stepping forward to identity himself as the boy in the footage because there was so much he could not remember. But when a document turned up at a museum in Israel shed light on his survival – Michael knew he had to share what he’d learned.

Together with his daughter Debbie Bornstein Holinstat, a writer and broadcast news producer, they began to dig for more information and planned to write a book. But even they never guessed the family secrets they’d uncover as they researched their book.

Join them for a powerful presentation at Congregation Beth-El Zedeck on Sunday, April 30 at 10:30 a.m.

Silent for seventy years, Michael is now eager to do what he can to make sure that future generations never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust, never discount the value of optimism and never underestimate the power of a parent’s love.

This presentation is free and open to the public, made possible through The Alan & Linda Cohen Center for Jewish Learning and Living. Books will be available for sale and signing.
