Only Hope: My Mother and the Holocaust Brought to Light


With Irv Lubliner, Professor Emeritus

Before she passed away in 1974, Felicia Bornstein Lubliner wrote about her captivity in Polish ghettos and two Nazi concentration camps, Auschwitz and Gross-Rosen. Her son will share excerpts from “Only Hope: A Survivor’s Stories of the Holocaust” and shed light on both his and his mother’s experiences. You will learn about the Holocaust through the eyes of a survivor, as well as how the instructor -- the child of two survivors -- was impacted by his parents' experiences.
