BETH TIKVAH VETERANS DAY COMMEMORATION 

Michael Hirsh

Michael Hirsh

On Tuesday, November 11 at 7:30pm, author Michael Hirsh will participate in a program to honor veterans and especially to remember the people of his book – The Liberators: America’s Witnesses to the Holocaust. This book has been widely praised: “These eyewitness accounts are powerful, detailed and horrifying. Of particular note is the last chapter, in which some of the veterans record what happened to them after the war; decades later, many still struggled with nightmares and rage.” –USA Today. “The survivors of Nazi concentration camps can never forget – and, as Michael Hirsh shows in his spellbinding work, neither can the young soldiers who liberated them.” –The New York Post.

Mr. Hirsh was an Army combat correspondent with the 25th Infantry Division in 1966 at Cu Chi, Vietnam. Liberators Cover

In 2010, the Vietnam Veterans of America presented him with their Excellence in the Arts Award.

Before turning author, Mr. Hirsh produced television documentaries and specials for PBS, CBS, ABC, and HBO. He is the recipient of many awards for this work, including the prestigious Peabody.

His other titles include Pararescue, None Braver, Your Other Left! Punch Lines from the Front Lines, Pirate Alley, and Fly on the Wall (mystery novel). He is also the co-author (with Michael Schiavo) of Terri: The Truth.

Mr. Hirsh will field questions from book columnist Phil Jason and then take questions from the audience. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing. Refreshments.

No admission charge. Beth Tikvah of Naples, a Conservative synagogue, is located at 1459 Pine Ridge Road just west of Mission Square Plaza.
