“Memories of a Child Survivor of the Holocaust”
The University of North AL will host "Inge Auerbacher: Memories of a Child Survivor of the Holocaust" on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in Norton Auditorium on the UNA Campus. The event is Free, no ticket required.
As a 3-year-old, Inge Auerbacher experienced Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, and spent three years in the Terezin concentration camp. Twenty of Inge’s relatives were killed during the Holocaust. Inge is the only child survivor from the State of Wuerttemberg who was deported from Stuttgart, Germany, to the concentration camps.
Books may be purchased for $6.00 (cash only) in the lobby before and after the feature.
The UNA Collegiate Singers will perform a song “Who Am I” written by Inge Auerbacher.
A special thanks to the Temple B’Nai Israel Synagogue of Florence, Alabama, and the Office of Diversity and Institutional Equity for their support of this event.
Each year, as the Spring distinguished event, UNA hosts an annual Front Porch Storytelling Festival on the third weekend in May. Taking place on May 19-20, 2017, will be our seventh annual Storytelling Festival with pre-festival events happening on May 19th. For more information, visit: www.una.edu/storytelling.
