Holocaust survivor to tell her story at USI
Marion Blumenthal Lazan is co-author of Four Perfect Pebbles, an award-winning book about her childhood under Hitler’s rule. She will present a moving first-hand account of the Blumenthal family’s life in Germany from the events preceding Kristallnacht to imprisonment in concentration camps to liberation in April of 1945. Lazan was 10 years old when the family gained its freedom.
Her mission is to speak to as many students as possible so they hear the story from a Holocaust survivor. A question and answer period and book-signing will follow her remarks.
The event is free and open to the public.
Her appearance at USI is sponsored by Activities Programming Board. For more information, contact Kathy S. Jones, program advisor for student activities, at 812/465-7167 or email@example.com.
