Intergenerational Holocaust Event at Temple Emanu-El in Westfield

For seventy years, Holocaust survivor Michael Bornstein chose to stay silent about his story. He wasn’t sure what he remembered and some parts were too painful to discuss. Then he discovered a document from a museum in Israel that revealed a stunning detail about his survival. That began a journey by Michael and his daughter, Debbie Bornstein Holinstat, a broadcast news producer, to learn more. It culminated with the father-daughter team writing Survivor’s Club – an accessible and inspirational Holocaust memoir and NY Times bestseller.

Now, armed with new information about his survival, and against a backdrop of rising anti-Semitism and racism worldwide, Michael and Debbie are eager to share what they’ve learned.

They have appeared on TV, radio and at speaking engagements nationwide, reminding listeners of what can happen when discrimination is ignored.

We are pleased to announce that Michael and Debbie will be speaking at Temple Emanu-El on March 27th, 2018 at 7:30 PM, followed by a book signing and reception. The Westfield and surrounding communities are invited to attend this very special Holocaust remembrance event.

Michael can no longer stay silent. He is committed to ensuring that future generations never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust, never discount the value of optimism, and neverunderestimate the power of a parent’s love.

All are welcome to this free event at Temple Emanu-El – 756 East Broad Street in Westfield.
