I lived through a traumatic and cruel period of history. There are important lessons to be learned and personal accounts to be recorded.

Max Eisen is a Hungarian Jew. In 1944, he and his family were forcibly removed from their home and eventually sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau, the notorious Nazi concentration camp. At the age of 15, Max survived the "selection" process and became a slave labourer at the camp. His remarkable story of courage and survival is told through his national best-selling book "By Chance Alone." We are honoured to welcome Max Eisen to the "A Day in the Life" stage.
