About Andy:

Andy Rti is a child survivor of the Holocaust. Born in 1942 in Rechnitz, Austria, he was only two years old when his mother and grandmother were forced out of their home in Hungary and into a Jewish ghetto. Andys father and grandfather had already been moved to a forced labour camp. He was liberated from the Budapest ghetto on January 18, 1945, by the Soviet Red Army. He and his mother, grandmother and grandfather survived the horrors of the war through good fortune and grit. They immigrated to Canada shortly thereafter. Andy attributes his survival to the courage, resilience and sacrifice of his mother and grandmother. He believes that every Holocaust survivors story is a love story; the love of life, family and freedom. Andy has been involved in Holocaust education since 1998. In 2001, he wroteThe Son of an Extraordinary Woman a sequel to his mothers book,An Ordinary Woman in Extraordinary Times, which was written in 1990. In 2016, the two books were combined and re-released asStronger Together.
