    Brown Bag Lunch Program - A Holocaust Survivor Speaks

    Aisic Hirsch, a Holocaust survivor, speaks to us about his life in Poland that changed completely when at the age of nine he witnessed German troops invade his small town, and he and his family were forced into a ghetto. Later in the Warsaw Ghetto, he watched helplessly as his brother and grandmother died of typhus, and his mother slid into madness. At age 12 he was alone. He was able to escape from the Warsaw Ghetto by bribing Polish and German guards. He is alive today because of “his guardian angel," a Catholic priest who befriended and protected him.

    This program is part of BPL’s Brown Bag Lunch Program series. The programs are held on scheduled Wednesdays for the lunchtime crowd in the Arrington Auditorium at the Central Library and at selected branches. There is no charge and the library provides free beverages.
