Muguette Myers’ story is a testament to the resilience and strength of the human spirit in the face of unimaginable adversity. As a survivor of the Holocaust, she experienced firsthand the horrors of Nazipersecution and the challenges of hiding and living in constant fear. Born in Paris, France, in 1931, Muguette Myers and her family were forced to go into hiding to escape the Nazis. She and her mother and older brother found refuge in the small village of Champlost, where they lived in constant fear of being discovered.
Despite the challenges they faced, Muguette and her family managed to survive the war and the Holocaust. After the war ended, they were able to return to Paris and begin rebuilding their lives.
Muguette’s story is an important reminder of the atrocities that were committed during the Holocaust, and of the importance of remembering and honoring the survivors and victims of this dark period in human history. Her visit to St. John’s is a unique opportunity to hear firsthand about her experiences and to learn from her inspiring resilience and strength.
