December 8, 2015
This is a full recording of SMRLS' 25th Annual Fall Luncheon Celebration at the InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront hotel on November 24, 2015.
Approximately 600 guests attended the event/CLE at the Intercontinental St. Paul Riverfront Hotel to witness the first-hand account of Dr. Michael Bornstein’s compelling personal journey as a Nazi concentration camp survivor.
The Honorable Susan Richard Nelson, United States District Court, District of Minnesota, provided inspiring introductory remarks for Dr. Michael Bornstein, who graciously shared his story as one of the youngest survivors of Auschwitz.
With the help of his wife, Judy, his daughter, Debbie, and his son, Scott, Dr. Bornstein provided an intimate presentation on his family history and shared a chilling recollection of enduring extreme sickness and maltreatment during the Nazi regime. He expressed how those experiences shaped the course of the rest of his life, and stressed the importance that his family played in encouraging him to share his story; which included the revealing of the Nazi concentration camp number – B-1148 – stamped on his forearm.
