My Holocaust Experience ~ An evening with Julius Maslovat

On Thursday, March 19th, the Fairfield Gonzales Community Association will host a special evening with Julius Maslovat, who will share his personal story, “My Holocaust Experience.”

Born in a Poland ghetto in 1942, and of Jewish origin, Julius was forced to live in two concentration camps, before being liberated in 1945, eventually being adopted in Finland. In 1966, at the age of 24, Julius arrived in Canada and began extensive research about his life, with the aim of being able to share his story with his grandchildren.

Julius’ desire to be involved in the community has led him to engagement in several places, such as the Repair Cafe, Good Food Box, the Langham Theatre and Plastic Recycling. Julius finds volunteering very satisfying, as a direct and engaged means of helping people. He explains that, “We have to go outside of ourselves, sometimes it might be physical, and sometimes technical.”

Julius’ personality is marked by the Holocaust and for 15 years this naturalized Canadian has held many talks about this dark part of history. He is here to opportunity for our community to become more aware about the Holocaust experience, as he thinks many are not. He’s grateful to be alive to speak about this topic, feels an obligation to tell it and hopes to make citizens realize how strong the prejudice was.

Julius expresses his gratitude for meetings like this and for all the people who have helped him, and feels that both are essential to his survival, and would not be here to speak on this topic without that support.
