Max Garcia Shares
His Unique Life Story


Auschwitz, Auschwitz... I Cannot Forget You,
As Long as I Remain Alive


 

Tuesday December 9th, 2014, 5:00 - 7:00 PM

We would like to bring your attention a special event that the Consulate General of the Netherlands is organizing on December 9th, 2014.
Max Garcia (born in Amsterdam in 1924 and San Francisco resident) architect and Auschwitz survivor, will share his unique story as told in his book 
"Auschwitz, Auschwitz... I Cannot Forget You, As Long as I Remain Alive". 
Max will start his talk with stories about his early life in Amsterdam, before the war.
 
A quote from the website of Max Garcia:
This book tells the story of Max Garcia, his family, his survival of Holocaust tortures, and his remarkable life today. It details Max’s triumph over the Nazis; however, this isn't a story about the past. It is a testimony to an enduring belief in the future. Max not only survives the concentration camps, but begins to rebuild his life the moment the first American tank rolls in, working as an interpreter for his liberators.
