Holocaust survivor to share story with NE Michigan

Submitted by on September 12, 2019 – 12:56 amNo Comment

A Holocaust survivor and author will be in Alpena next week, to share her harrowing story of survival and life.

Irene Miller, author of ‘Into No Man’s Land: A Historical Memoir’, will be at the George N. Fletcher Public Library to not only share her childhood journey but to also give a face to a dark chapter of human history, promote tolerance and diversity, inspire positive action – including anti-bullying, and empower people to overcome obstacles in life.

In her retirement, Miller is a speaker for the Detroit Institute of Arts, a courts mediator, and serves on the Board of Directors of the American Jewish Committee, the oldest civil rights organization in the U.S.

The documentary “Irene: Child of the Holocaust,” based on her story, premiered on PBS in December 2016.

Miller will be at the library next Wednesday, at 6:30 p.m. She will also be appearing at the Harrisville branch of the Alcona County Public Library as well as area schools.
