Longtime Charlotte area religion writer, Ken Garfield, recently took on a new project to find and interview Holocaust survivors still living here in the Charlotte area. He was able to speak to nearly all of the twelve remaining survivors in our area and compiled his conversations into a new feature that appears in this month’s Charlotte Magazine. For Garfield, born and raised Jewish, the project is the fulfillment of a promise he made to himself long ago. We’ll talk to Garfield and two of the survivors featured in the piece.

Irving Bienstock – 83 years old, Holocaust survivor from Holland
