College of the Canyons will welcome author and holocaust survivor Leon Malmed for a special presentation of his memoir ‘We Survived… At Last I Speak’ on Wednesday, Feb. 15 at Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, Room 258.
Malmed, has shared his story of survival at churches, synagogues, and universities throughout the United States and Europe.
First published in French in 2010, “We Survived… At Last I Speak” tells the story of how 5-year-old Leon and his sister were separated from their parents in occupied France in 1942. His parents ultimately died at the now infamous death camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau, and he and his sister never saw them again.
Malmed eventually immigrated to the United States in 1964, and lived in New York for the next 18 years. He went on to hold executive positions with leading tech companies in the Silicon Valley, including SanDisk.
Currently retired, Malmed serves on the Board of Directors for the Lake Tahoe Community College Foundation.
