Holocaust Survivor Speaking on Campus Today

MCC's Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Project invites you to hear the testimony of Holocaust survivor Werner Schenk. Schenk is from Luebeck, Germany. His family was arrested by the Gestapo many times but his father, a specialist tool and die maker working on advanced military systems, was needed. After being alerted by a friend in the police department, he and his mother went into hiding with the help of nuns in the town's hospital. Werner attended school with a false identity, protected by the principal. While his immediate family survived, 40 of his relatives were murdered in the camps.

Holocaust Survivor Testimony: Werner Schenk
Tuesday, October 16
Brighton Campus, Brighton Room (3-217)

Meeting and listening to a survivor is a singular experience - and it's one that soon won't be possible as we continue to lose survivors at an accelerating rate. Join us and be inspired by Werner's presentation and the discussion that follows. This event is FREE and open to all MCC students, faculty, and staff.
