On the Life and Legacy of Her Grandfather Aaron Feuerstein
"The Mensch of Malden Mills"

Exclusive Online Event

Aaron Feuerstein was the head of a successful family business that suffered severe setbacks after a fire destroyed his Massachusetts factory. He became famous for his commitment to the wellbeing of his 3,000 employees, paying them even while they couldn’t work, earning the nickname the “Mensch of Malden Mills.” But rebuilding came with challenges that ultimately cost him the company.

Marika Feuerstein tells the lesser-known story of her grandfather’s later life, and how the Feuerstein family regrouped in the wake of the fire. It is in the aftermath of loss that his true life and legacy can be discussed.
