Stanley L. Ronell, a Holocaust survivor born in Krakow, Poland, will speak on Thursday, April 18 at 2 p.m. at the Main Library, Community Room.
Stanley Ronell was saved with his mother by being hidden in Poland and Hungary by The Righteous Among The Nations, a brave network of individuals, that refers to non-Jews from many countries who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust. It is a designation (by the state of Israel) for a group of people who refused to be bystanders. Tragically, Mr. Ronell’s father perished at Auschwitz. Most of his parents’ families also died in concentration camps. Mother and son came to the USA in 1951.
Stanley Ronell has devoted himself to the teaching of the Holocaust to students in secular and religious schools. He has lectured on the subject of the Holocaust to over 13,000 students, including student teachers, full time teachers, and various adult groups. A widely recognized and sought after speaker, he is the recipient of several awards. Mr. Ronell’s passion is to fulfill the legacy of “Remember” left by the six million Jews who perished at the hands of the Nazis, and through education, to ensure that a Holocaust never happens again.
A graduate Mechanical Engineer with a Masters in Business Administration, Stanley Ronell is a marketing professional, having won numerous awards as a top sales and advertising executive.
