Michael Bornstein survived for seven months inside Auschwitz, where the average lifespan of a child was just two weeks. Six years after his liberation, he immigrated to the United States. Michael graduated from Fordham University, earned his Ph.D. from the University of Iowa, and worked in pharmaceutical research and development for more than forty years. Now retired, Michael lives with his wife in New York City and speaks frequently to schools and other groups about his experiences in the Holocaust.
With Debbie Bornstein-Holinstat, Michael is the author of Survivors Club: The True Story of a Very Young Prisoner of Auschwitz.
Michael and Debbie will speak from 7-8pm on Yom Hashoa.
