I want to know what I can do about being 'evicted' due to the bank owning my apartment building, because the owner went bankrupt. Thank you.

The bank steps into the shoes of the former owner and has the same right and obligations.
Your rights depend on what happened. If the apartment was foreclosed on, you are on month to month and don't live in rent controlled area then you get 90 days to move. If you have a lease then you get to stay until end of lease. If you live in rent controlled area with just cause required for eviction you can stay as long as you pay the rent and do not break any terms in the lease.
Hope that helps and good luck
