Dr. Bernie Furshpan was born in Israel in 1957, a twin to two holocaust survivors. His family emigrated to the USA in 1963, where they settled in Brooklyn. Bernie attended James Madison HS and went on to Stony Brook University and NY Chiropractic College in Old Westbury in the late 1970s. He practiced for 30 years until he retired from his practice to run a marketing consultancy and jazz club in NYC. He claims that he's had many successful ventures and businesses over the years, but nothing compares with the satisfaction he gets from giving tours and lectures at the Holocaust Center in Glen Cove. Bernie will speak about the harrowing story of how his father, the only survivor in his family of eight, managed to live through the Holocaust from age 10 and build a life and family in Israel and in the U.S.
