Two Twisted Sisters Productions and Temple Beth Tikvah present author Daniel M. Cohen, discussing his book Single Handed and the extraordinary life of its hero, Tibor “Teddy” Rubin – the only Holocaust survivor ever to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor. After being captured by Nazis at age 13 and surviving the horrors of the notorious Mauthausen concentration camp for more than a year, he later volunteered for service in the Korean War. After many acts of heroism, he was captured. As a POW, he helped his fellow GIs survive for two and half years in captivity. After returning to the US, over 50 years passed before Tibor’s adopted homeland recognized this Jewish immigrant for acts of valor that went “beyond the call of duty". In 2005, at age 76, he was invited to the White House and given the Medal of Honor by President George W. Bush. With a Q&A to follow the presentation, attendees are sure to be part of a fascinating community discussion that connects these trials of the past to our current social climate.
