General meeting & special guest

Our first General Meeting of the year took place on Sunday, January 22nd, 2023. All association's members were invited to participate.

During this virtual meeting, there was a presentation by our special guest, Michael Gruenbaum, who talked about his memories of surviving the Holocaust as a teenager in Czechoslovakia.

Mr. Gruenbaum recommended reading his book “Somewhere There Is Still a Sun" as well as his wife’s (Thelma Gruenbaum) book “Nesarim: Child Survivors of Terezin”, both available on Amazon.
Also see the press release about the educational video for children: The Teddy Bear, an animated film about the Holocaust, narrated by Michael Gruenbaum.
