All programs listed below are open to both members and non-members.   

We survived… at last I speak: Leon Malmed’s Holocaust Survival

When Leon Malmed’s parents were arrested by the Nazis in 1942, their French neighbors offered to watch 5-year-old Leon, thinking it would be a few days. He never saw his parents again, and after about 60 years of silence about his World War II experiences, he decided to share his story and publish a book, titled “We survived… at last I speak”. Join us for a special opportunity to learn from Leon and hear his story.
