Talk: Story of Survival, “My Father’s Escape From the Holocaust”

I am excited to extend a final and personal invitation for you to join us at a very special event tonight.
My sister, Simie Schtroks, who some of you may know from listening to her recordings on “Inspiration in Ten“, will fly in from Beautiful Surrey, British Colombia to share my father’s personal experiences as a refugee in Shanghai China during WWII in her unique and captivating style. This talk coincides with my father, Reb Gershon Chanowitz’s upcoming second Yartzeit. It is a sequel to the Sugihara program done in Boulder fifteen years ago.

Some of you may remember when we brought Mr. Chiune Sugihara (the son of the Japanese Schindler) as well as my father, one of the survivors saved by his visas and they told their story to a few thousand people in Boulder and Denver. Please help me spread the word and invite your friends. This event will take place in Boulder once only and that once is tonight! Info: “How the Wandering Jew Survives and Thrives. Based on My Father’s Life Story and his experience as a refugee in Shanghai China during WWII”
