Holocaust Survivor "Authors" Compelling Remembrance Day Program

The sheer terror and physical torture experienced by the men, women and children who were held captive in Nazi concentration camps during the Holocaust will be portrayed in a compelling and compassionate "Remembrance Day Program" presented by Holocaust survivor and acclaimed author Marion Blumenthal Lazan on Sunday evening, May 1 at 7 p.m. in the Clubhouse of Merrick Road Park Golf Course on Clubhouse Road in Merrick.

Supervisor Kate Murray invites fellow Hempstead Town residents to share "an unforgettable night with a remarkable woman, whose story will move you and whose message will inspire you."

Ms. Lazan's memoir, entitled "Four Perfect Pebbles," is used by schools across the country as a source of living history to preserve the memory of the Holocaust for the last generation of students to hear the story first hand.

There is limited seating for this special Holocaust program. The event is presented free of charge and tickets are not required. Seating accommodations will be handled on a first-come, first- served basis. For program information please call Barbara Badler of the Town of Hempstead Parks Department at (516) 292-9000, ext. 255.
