Posted on January 24, 2014 by Dawn Zimmer

MESA, Ariz. – Mesa Community College (MCC) Communication and Philosophy & Religious Studies Departments will host a free lecture from author Marty Brounstein on February 5. The lecture will be held at MCC’s Southern and Dobson campus (1833 W. Southern Ave., Mesa) in the Library Reading Room (LB300) from 2 to 3:30 p.m. 

The guest lecturer, Marty Brounstein, a San Mateo, California-based author and former history teacher, will tell the story presented in his eighth book, Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust. Brounstein presents the story of a Christian couple responsible for saving the lives of at least 24 Jewish people in the Netherlands during the Holocaust and World War II. He will place the story in historical context and share his personal connection to this piece of work.

The public is encouraged to come and listen to this remarkable story and discover the deeply personal and present day connection this author has to the people in this narrative.

A resource for life-long learning, MCC offers many learning experiences for residents as well as its students, faculty and staff. Information about public events presented at both MCC campuses may be found on the college’s Events Calendar.
