BATH, Maine — After six years of research, author Ernie Weiss will share his family’s story of survival, “Out of Vienna: Eight Years of Flight from the Nazis,” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, at Patten Free Library.

The book is about 28 members of the author’s family from Vienna and Prague, who were persecuted by the Nazis. Ten did not survive the Holocaust. Nine were murdered by Nazis. One committed suicide.

Weiss is the son of a Dachau Concentration Camp survivor. In his research, he contacted and visited municipal and government agencies in Vienna, Israel, Italy, France and Dachau to document his story.
