Albert HershAt 89, Albert Hersh is one of the youngest surviving Holocaust survivors with clear memories.  Mr. Hersh will share stories of the time his family was taken from what was Czechoslovakia to Auschwitz, when he was 15 years old.  Coming just days after Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, we will have a rare opportunity to hear from someone whose life journey has much to teach us about both man’s inhumanity to man and compassion.  How did he get from there to here?  How did he survive?  What did he learn about humanity?  Mr. Hersh will share these details at his first-ever presentation in a church!  Plan to join us.
