Details: Join us for a delicious potluck followed by an incredible and inspirational talk from author and Holocaust survivor Alter Wiener. Mr. Wiener was born in October of 1926 in Chrzanów, Poland. At a young age he was deported from his home by Nazi officers in the middle of the night and was enslaved for three years in five forced labor and concentration camps. When liberated, Mr. Weiner weighed eighty pounds and was burdened with many health issues. He is the only survivor of his immediate family and lost almost his entire extended family in the Holocaust as well.
If you come for the potluck, please bring a plant-based (no animal products, including honey) main dish, salad, or dessert; a card listing its ingredients; and plates and utensils for your use.
If you have read his book or heard Alter speak, you know how powerful, touching, and inspirational his life story is. Come while you can--most of his presentations are in schools, Churches, and other places that are not open to the public without advance permission. This presentation at the NW Veg potluck IS open to the public.
Hardcover, autographed books will be available for sale after the presentation for $20.
