Holocaust survivor Eva Meisels will speak about her experiences surviving the Holocaust.

Eva Meisels was born in Budapest, Hungary,  in 1939, an only child. After her father was taken to a forced labour camp in 1942, Eva and her mother were sent to the Budapest Ghetto and eventually, a safe house. They obtained false papers from Raoul Wallenberg and were liberated by the Soviet Army. After the war, Eva went back to school and immigrated to Canada in 1956.
