Survival itself was truly a miracle for young Samuel Heider who is now 95 and a Miami Valley resident. Forced to leave the idyllic fruit farm owned by his Jewish family in Poland during World War II, he was sent along with other family members to the Bialobrzegi ghetto. That confinement was just the beginning of a string of near-death experiences which he will recount for the public.
Join us at the Centerville Library on Wednesday, October 16, 7 p.m., to hear this remarkable man recount his life. “Miracles of Miracles: A Dayton, Ohio Man’s Story of Holocaust Survival” is based on Heider’s memoir of the same name written with local author Stevie Ann Kremer. The program is free, but registration is required to ensure adequate seating.
