Leon Malmed

When Leon Malmed's parents were arrested by the Nazis in 1942, their French neighbors offered to watch 5-year-old Leon, thinking it would be but a few days.
 
Instead, his parents were taken to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp and never returned. But their downstairs neighbors continued to safeguard and protect Leon through roundups of Jews, threats, air raids and war privations. Thanks to their care, he survived the Holocaust.
 
After 60 years of silence about his World War II experiences, he decided to tell his story in the memoir “We Survived … At Last I Speak,” which has been published in English, French and Spanish.

Since breaking his silence, Malmed has spoken at community centers, synagogues, schools and universities throughout the United States and Europe. Now he will share his memories and insights into that dark time at the Chabad Jewish Community Center.
 
His adult life is also inspiring. Malmed, who graduated in mechanical engineering from the University of Paris, immigrated to the United States in 1964 and lived in New York for 18 years.
 
He went on to work in the high tech industry in Silicon Valley, where he held executive positions with leading companies and has served on several boards of directors.
 
Along the way, he also became a graduate of the AEA Senior Executive Program at UCLA and the AEA Executive Institute Program for Management of High Technology Companies at Stanford Business School.
 
He and his wife, Patricia, resided in the San Francisco Bay area for 30 years and now live in South Lake Tahoe.
 
Copies of Malmed's book will be for sale, and he will be available to sign them after the presentation. The proceeds go to the Holocaust Survivors in need.
