Pinchas Gutter, Holocaust survivor
Sunday, November 3 | 2PM | Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, Rowe Hall | 1055 Marginal Road, Halifax
**This event is part of the AJC’s 2019 Holocaust Education Week**
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 flashbacks 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.
