Holocaust Remembrance Week: Beyond Words …
Posted by Susan Hawksworth on 03/25/2014
Survival. Such a simple word. But when the story of survival is told, it moves beyond words, to pain, empathy, respect and hope. Join Martin Weiss as he shares his story at a free presentation, Wednesday, April 23, 7:00 pm, in Sam’s Chapel at Kansas Wesleyan University. Martin’s story of survival includes Nazi invasion, anti-Jewish laws, a work ghetto, the Auschwitz Death Camp, the Mauthausen Concentration Camp system, a forced death march, liberation and emigration. Martin currently volunteers as a speaker for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
The Museum’s Education Department is proud to support Kansas Wesleyan throughout Holocaust Remembrance & Genocide Awareness Week, April 21 through April 25. Learn more about this and other activities at www.kwu.edu.
