Through the Eyes of a Survivor

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Looking forward to upcoming Science Museum of Long Island Gala, I find the guest speaker and honorees truly remarkable.  Chris Nicola, a caver and explorer who uncovered secrets from the dark existence of 38 Jews living underground for 344 days during the Holocaust, will be speaking on his discoveries.  If his story isn’t enough to put you in complete awe, Sonia Hochman, Priest’s Grotto survivor is expected to attend. 

The idea of meeting Chris at the gala and hearing his stories of discovery and revelations regarding how they survived under such extreme conditions moved me to keep researching his expeditions.  The online stories and interviews are amazing and awe inspiring. 

However, I feel the opportunity to meet Sonia will heighten and make the whole story of how they survived come to life.  If you are planning to attend, please find me and I will help you make an introduction to living history.
