Sinclair Holocaust Remembrance 2007
On Tuesday, April 24 at 7:30 p.m., Holocaust survivor Dr. Felix Garfunkel will deliver the keynote address of Sinclair Community College’s annual Holocaust remembrance events, in the Sinclair Ponitz Center.
A native of Romania, Garfunkel was sent along with his family into slave labor by the Nazis. He and his father escaped, but were recaptured and sent to a concentration camp. He and his parents survived and later went to Ecuador, where Garfunkel attended medical school. Eventually he came to the United States and worked as a radiologist at Greene Memorial Hospital until his retirement in 1991.
In addition, an exhibit of Israeli children’s art from the American Friends of the Ghetto Fighters Museum in New Jersey will be on display in Sinclair’s library during the month of April.
Both programs are free and open to the public. For more information, call 512-5189.
