Announcement on January 3

ddLIFETREE CAFÉ: The story of the youngest Holocaust survivor from Schindler’s List will be presented this week.

In the Lifetree film, Leyson describes how the Nazis captured his family members, confined them in the Jewish ghetto area of Krakow, and herded them onto trains bound for concentration camps. “Suddenly, I lost my most basic rights,” recalls Leyson. “I was hungry all the time and frightened all the time.” Leyson describes how Schindler pulled him out of a line bound for the death camps.

Lifetree’s Thom Schultz, who conducted the interview, said Leyson revealed portions of his story he had not shared before. “Leyson’s story and his colorful characterization of Oskar Schindler provide a riveting peek into a horrific chapter of history,” Schultz said..
