Event Horizon

“The bigger the crime, the greater forgiveness.”

Friday, Dec 9: Simon Gronowski

The attack on the 20th convoy to Auschwitz was unusual and life-altering for many. Three men from the Belgian Resistance tricked the Nazis running the train to stop in the middle of the night and then hastily cut the barbed wire keeping in more than 1,600 people in freight wagons; 233 escaped and 118 survived. On Friday, Dec. 9, one of those survivors, Simon Gronowski, will be at Vista Grande Community Center to speak about his experiences during this horrific and turbulent time, followed by a jazz piano performance beginning at 7:30pm. Gronowski is a Doctor of Law at Universite libre de Bruxelles, but in his spare time plays jazz piano and travels the world discussing his most painful experiences and how he's learned to forgive. Advance tickets to see this incredible survivor are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors.
