Get Directions

This event is free to attend and open to the public.

The opportunity to hear the first-person account of a Holocaust survivor is often a once in a lifetime experience. Join us on May 6 as Hershel Greenblat shares his story. This program is presented in cooperation with the Alpharetta Library.

Hershel Greenblat was born in the Ukraine in 1941. The first two years of his life were spent hiding in a cave. When the German invasion of the Soviet Union began, Hershel’s parents moved frequently to avoid capture. Life for Hershel and his family changed dramatically when they were arrived in the American controlled zone of Austria. They lived in displaced persons camps for five years before receiving permission to immigrate to the U.S.
