This International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the VHEC and the JCC Jewish Book Festival present the launch of Bernard Pinsky’s memoir “Ordinary, Extraordinary: My Father's Life”. The event is free, and everyone is welcome. A reception and book signing follow the event.

About the book:

Every Holocaust survivor’s tale is a testament to their resilience, blending luck, endurance, kindness of others and determination. Ordinary, Extraordinary recounts Rubin Pinsky’s survival and showcases his post-Holocaust life, detailing the remarkable journey of resilience and perseverance. What started as a gift to his father while he was still alive, became an extended gesture of gratitude to him and other Holocaust survivors for coming back to life and making future generations’ lives possible.

BERNARD PINSKY was born and raised in Winnipeg and graduated from the University of Manitoba. He lives in Vancouver where he has practised law for more than 40 years and is currently board chair of the Ronald S. Roadburg foundation.

Free complimentary book offered to participants (one per family).
