Holocaust survivor and Adelaide resident Andrew Steiner will deliver a special presentation about how his family survived and narrowly escaped the Holocaust at the Tea Tree Gully Library on 27 January 2015.
Andrew was a Jewish boy in Budapest, Hungary. He and his family were lined up outside their home by an execution squad and for reasons unknown, they did not fire. The family living across the road was not so lucky – Andrew witnessed their execution.
Since the war, Andrew, who is an artist and historian, has been on a quest for answers and is a passionate advocate for respect and compassion. In his talk he will provide unique insights on the holocaust, based on his own first-hand experiences.
Tea Tree Gully Library will join the world in marking the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, by commemorating International Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January.
This day is internationally noted and dedicated to the remembrance of those who suffered in the Holocaust under Nazi persecution.
A display of Andrew’s artworks and information boards will be on display in the library from 27 January-24 February.
