Holocaust speaker, Monday, April 12

On Monday, April 12, at 7 p.m. in Timmerman Auditorium (Hyland Hall), Howard Melton will speak on “Survival in a Time of Holocaust.”

Howard Melton was ten years old when the Nazis invaded his native land. He spent the rest of the war in concentration camps and ghettos. After the war he came to the United States and was not eager to talk about his experiences. Then he heard about those who denied that the Holocaust had happened and he felt compelled to speak. His talk will illustrate the depths to which human beings can sink and the challenge to all of us to make sure that it never happens again.

This event is sponsored by the Jewish Student Organization.

The national Days of Remembrance, which commemorate the Holocaust, are April 11 – April 18, 2010. For information on how Andersen Library will be honoring the Days of Remembrance, see this blog entry.
