  • Holocaust Remembrance Service - May 14, 2015
    You are invited to a service of remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust at 7:00 p.m. on April 16 at Hope Lutheran Church (3527 Boulton Road NW). Leslie Meisels, a holocaust survivor and author of a memoir, Suddenly the Shadow Fell, will be the guest speaker with his wife Eva.
    Leslie Meisels was born in Nádudvar, Hungary in 1927. He lived with his parents, two brothers, and both sets of grandparents. He survived the ghetto in Debrecen, slave labour and eventual deportation to Bergen-Belsen. He was liberated in April 1945 by the US Army. His mother, father and both brothers also survived. Leslie immigrated to Canada in 1967.

    Eva Meisels was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1939, an only child. After her father was taken to a forced labour camp in 1942, Eva and her mother were sent to the Budapest Ghetto and eventually, a safe house. They obtained false papers from Raoul Wallenberg and were liberated by the Soviet Army. After the war, Eva went back to school and immigrated to Canada in 1956.
