Holocaust survivor Yvonne Aronson will share her powerful firsthand account of loss and resilience on April 11 at Muscatine Community College (MCC).  

The event, Remembering the Holocaust: A Talk with a Survivor, is open to the public and begins at 1 p.m. in the MCC Student Center, 152 Colorado St., Muscatine, Iowa.   

Aronson was born in 1939, and the next year, her father and brother were taken to a labor camp in southern France. She remained in Brussels with her mother and other relatives, until eventually, they went into hiding in a convent. Over the next few years, Aronson and her mother evaded persecution, surviving until the war ended thanks to the generosity of a pharmacist who hid them in his cellar, and then a widow who hid and cared for her for more than three years.  

Her father died in Auschwitz. Aronson immigrated to the U.S. in March 1947.  

Don't miss this opportunity to connect with history and honor the memory of those lost. Light refreshments will be served.
