This week we present something quite different. The angle of every podcast is that, of course, it has to do with magic and magicians. This one is unusual because the magician we talk with is Werner Reich who was first introduced to magic as a teenager in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp during WWII. There are some rather descriptive and gruesome details described in this podcast. It might not be for everyone as it focuses on the Holocaust. So, be forewarned. But this is one of the most inspiring podcasts I have ever recorded. And there is a lot of magic discussed, too.

You can see some photos of Werner Reich, read the blog, listen online to the podcast and download the MP3 file at:

Thanks so much for this! I saw the notice of his speaking at the Breman Museum yesterday but couldn't attend. So very happy for the podcast.

Holocaust survivor/magician to speak at Breman Museum
Talk coincides with Houdini exhibition

A man who as a boy survived the Holocaust by entertaining the Nazis with magic is coming to the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum in Midtown to coincide with its exhibition on Harry Houdini.

Magician Werner Reich, 91, will speak May 26 at 2 p.m. in a talk with magician, author and entrepreneur Joshua Jay. It’s one of at least a dozen events the museum is hosting in conjunction with its new exhibition, “Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini,” which opened April 14 and closes Aug. 11.
