On Saturday, May 23rd at 10:00am Gene Klein will visit the Hudson Library to discuss his family's harrowing experiences in the Holocaust, as detailed in a book collaboratively written by him and his daughter titled We Got the Water.
In 1944, along with more than 400,000 other Hungarian Jews, Gene Klein and his family were forced to leave their home and board one of the very first trains sent from Hungary to Auschwitz.
We Got the Water: Tracing my Family’s Path Through Auschwitz by Dr. Jill Klein and Gene Klein is now available at the library and additional copies will be available for purchase during his visit. This program is free and open to the public.
Please call the library at (828)526-3031 for more information.
The subject of the book is Louis Zamperini, who discovered his talent for running and went on to became one of the youngest members of the 1936 U.S. Olympic team. When World War II began the athlete became an airman, and in 1943 his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean. Against all odds Zamperini survived, adrift on a life raft for 46 days and then spent over two years as a POW in Japan.
Reserve a copy now through our online catalog or call the library to pick up one that is currently being held at the Hudson Library.
A discussion will occur on the last Tuesday of each month at 10:00 am.
Our next discussion will be on May 26, 2015.
