Event description
In-person Holocaust Survivor Testimony from Pinchas Gutter, survivor of the Warsaw ghetto and the Majdanek Death Camp

About this Event

As ten-year-old Pinchas is deported from the Warsaw ghetto to the killing site of Majdanek and then to concentration camps, he shuts himself off to the terrors surrounding him and tries his best not to be noticed, to become almost invisible. But after liberation, his photographic memory won’t let his past fade away, and Pinchas struggles to deal with nightmares and fl ashbacks while trying to raise a family and heal his emotional scars.

Born in Lodz, Poland, on July 21, 1932, Pinchas Gutter was the only member of his immediate family to survive the Holocaust. Pinchas lived in France, Israel, Brazil and South Africa before immigrating to Canada (Toronto) in 1985.

Copies of Pinchas Gutter’s memoirs will be provided to attendees free of charge compliments of The Azrieli Foundation.

Sponsored by The Azrieli Foundation.

Presented in partnership with the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 and the Atlantic Jewish Council.

This program is part of the Atlantic Jewish Council's 16th Annual Holocaust Education Week, happening in Halifax, NS, from October 30 to November 7, 2019, which is made possible in part by a generous grant from the Azrieli Foundation. All programs are free of charge and open to the public. For 2019 Holocaust Education Week program and schedule updates, please visit www.HolocaustEducation.ca
