 Jacob Eisenbach, D.D.S. with Dean Ronnie Myers, D.D.S.

The Touro College of Dental Medicine at New York Medical College welcomed Jacob Eisenbach, D.D.S., right, a 94-year-old Holocaust survivor and retired dentist, for an afternoon presentation, on October 30. Dr. Eisenbach gave a harrowing account of his childhood days in Poland before World War II began and his struggle for survival under the wrath of the Third Reich. He was the sole survivor of his extended family of 100. Dr. Eisenbach retired from his dental practice in 2015 at the age of 92, after practicing for 60 years. He is the author of Where You Go, I Go, a first-person account of his experiences and longevity. Dr. Eisenbach keeps a full calendar of speaking engagements to keep the story of the Holocaust alive and prevent the tragedy of genocide from happening in the future. Ronnie Meyers, D.D.S., left, dean of the Touro College of Dental Medicine at New York Medical College, presented Dr. Eisenbach with a plaque in recognition of his “extraordinary lifetime achievement in the field of dentistry, astonishing courage and bravery in the face of diversity and invaluable contribution to causes of global justice.” View the photo gallery here and view the presentation here.
