In this penetrating memoir, Determined to Survive:
A Story of Survival and One Teacher’s Passion to Bring That Story to Life, we witness the Holocaust through the eyes of Max Steinmetz, who was a teenager during World War II. With great clarity, Max recounts the three years of confinement in ghettos and five concentration camps. Max was the only member of his family to survive this horrific experience. His story of survival in the face of unspeakable evil and cruelty is not only the story of an incredible individual defying the odds, but also the story of the endurance and triumph of the human spirit. Books will be available for purchase, and a signing will take place after the program.
