Holocaust survivor Pieter Kohnstam presents “Narrow Escape – A Flight to Freedom,” the story of his family’s frightening departure from Amsterdam in 1942 and the subject of his later book, A Chance to Live: A Family’s Journey to Freedom.
The young Kohnstam was a childhood friend of diarist Anne Frank, and the two families were neighbors. He will speak at 10:30 a.m. in the Greenfelder-Denlinger Boardrooms of the Student Community Center. The public is invited and admission is free. The program is sponsored by the Saint Leo University Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies.
