Written by Patti Foley

Remembrance Day marks the anniversary of the official end of the World War I hostilities on November 11, 1918 and it is at this time of year that we gather to remember and honour all civilians and military personnel who died during armed conflicts.

Caledon Public Library is honoured to welcome Mr. Leslie Meisels of the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre on Thursday, November 10 at 10 am in the Albion Bolton Community Centre Auditorium.

Mr. Meisels was born in Hungary in 1927 and lived with his parents, 2 brother and both sets of grandparents. He survived the ghettos in Nadudvar and Debrecen, slave labour in Austria and the eventual deportation to Bergen-Belsen. He was liberated in 1945 by the 9th US Army from a death train. Miraculously, his parents and both siblings also survived. Mr. Meisels immigrated to Canada in 1967 and he joins us today to share his story.

Light refreshments will be served following the presentation. Everyone welcome.
