Holocaust survivor Manuela Mendels Bornstein will share her story at 3 p.m. November 18 in the Peachtree Corners City Community Chest room, located at 310 Technology Parkway N.W.
Bornstein was born in Paris to a Dutch mother and German father. 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. Bornstein and her family narrowly escaped through the help of friends who were active members of the French resistance.
The event is presented by the Gwinnett County Public Library and the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust. The event is appropriate for children who are at least in fifth grade. It is free and open to the public.
