Eva Olsson, Holocaust survivor, coming to GPPSD on Feb. 14

January 28, 2019
​The Grande Prairie Public School District is excited to announce that Eva Olsson, Holocaust survivor, renowned author, and Order of Ontario recipient will be speaking at Isabel Campbell Public School on Feb. 14, 2019, from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (7 p.m. book signing)

Eva Olsson was born on Oct. 28, 1924, in Szatmar Hungary. On May 15, 1944, she and her family were taken away in boxcars to Auschwitz. She uses her life experiences, primarily in the Holocaust, to illustrate the power of racism, bigotry and intolerance. She inspires many with her dignity and faith, and her contribution to education, community groups and associations.

Join us on Feb. 14, as this inspiring writer and speaker, Eva Olsson, shares insights, suggestions and stories about the importance of not being a bystander to injustice.

Admission is free; a gratitude jar will be available. Eva will have books for sale!
