A Remarkable True Story of Courage and Survival at Auschwitz
Those who have the why to live, will find the how...
Join us for an evening with Max Eisen, a 91 year old survivor of Auschwitz and author of the award-winning memoir, By Chance Alone. He has been an international Holocaust speaker and educator for over 30 years.
In the spring of 1944, gendarmes forcibly removed Tibor “Max” Eisen and his family from their home, brought them to a brickyard, and eventually loaded them onto crowded cattle cars bound for Auschwitz-Birkenau. At fifteen years of age, Eisen survived the selection process and was inducted into the camp as a slave laborer.
