Fairview Commons Hosts Author & Retired Professor Dr. Monique Saigal
By: MBK Senior Living
Dr. Monique Saigal was born in Paris, France before the break out of WWII. On August 24, 1942, fearing for Monique's life, her grandmother put her on a train carrying non-Jewish children whose father's like Monique's had died. Scared alone and only 3 years old, Monique arrived at the train station but there was no one to pick her up. It was then that a young woman by the name of Jaqueline Baleste saw the little girl with no nametag crying in the corner. She embraced her, brought her home and cared for Monique for eight years.
"You won't want to miss hearing more about Monique's incredible experiences and those of the French women who were hailed resistance fighters," said Renee Zuckerberg, Director of Sales for Fairview Commons. "She has such an engaging story to tell. We're thrilled to have her present at Fairview Commons."
