Erika Taubner Gold, a Holocaust survivor, will be speaking at the Mantua Historical Society's next meeting, to be held at 7 p.m. June 19 at the Mantua Town Hall, located on the historic green of Mantua Center, S.R. 82 and Mantua Center Road.
Gold grew up in Budapest and escaped the genocide as a child of almost 12 with her mother by jumping off a truck in 1944, headed to the Auschwitz concentration camp; they were the fortunate ones, because the other 300 or so on the truck died. Today, Gold spreads the word so that the Holocaust will not be forgotten or repeated.
The meeting is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be provided.
