Jack Garfein survived imprisonment at Auschwitz and came to the United States at the end of World War II. He was born in Mukacevo, Carpathian Ruthenia, Czechoslovakia, now Mukacheve, Ukraine. He is 84 years old and travels from Paris where he lives and also teaches to New York to do this workshops for students…like me…
I had the opportunity to be in one of his workshops in New York and it was fantastic he is still alive there is no age at all on him.
I had a good experience like life is not easy but you are walking everyday.
He is still a live…
