Margit Meissner, Holocaust survivor, Holocaust Museum docent, educator, author, world traveler and speaker extraordinaire. 

 

Margit will recount her early years in Vienna, Prague and Paris, how she escaped from France when it fell to the Nazis and her very eventful life since then, including her ardent advocacy for children with disabilities.  In fact, in 2003 MCPS presented her with a Distinguished Service Award and named her “Pioneer Individual” for having made a significant impact on the successes of special education curricula in Montgomery County.  You won’t want to miss this event.
