Holocaust survivor Mike Gerstner died today at the Harbor Hospice in Beaumont. He was 82.

Gerstner received his visa in 1951, when the Beaumont Jewish Community and the Service for New Americans sponsored his move to America from Poland. After learning English upon his arrival, he became one of the community’s foremost speakers on the Holocaust, recounting his personal experience in a death camp and urging listeners not to forget.
