Footnote to History

November 12, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Sunday, November 12th at 10:30 a.m.

Come to HCRJ (801 Bering Drive) and hear the story of Andrew Laszlo his Growing up in Hungary, the Holocaust and Coming to America, as told by his son Andrew Laszlo, Jr.  Andrew Laszlo was the only surviving member of his family after the Holocaust. He was at Bergen-Belsen at the same time as Anne Frank.  He came to America penniless and became a famous Cinematographer (Shogun, Rambo, First Blood). He was honored in the U.S. Capitol in 2004 Day of Remembrance alongside, Elie Wiesel.

My Father told me his secret when I was in my forties, that his family were all victims of the Holocaust and only he survived. Fifty years after arriving in New York Harbor, he presented me with his memoir sharing every detail of his story. He came to America with two dollars in his pocket and became a world-famous cinematographer. His life was a triumph over persecution and evil. His will to survive gave me and my children the gift of life. I present to honor my father. Keeping the story alive may help prevent it from happening again.
