Holocaust Survivor Guest Speaker:

Thursday, May 3, 2018 | 7 p.m. | Sams Chapel | Free  

Please join us for a special event as Holocaust survivor Susan Warsinger shares her experiences as a Jewish child living in Germany during the Nazi period, her separation from her family after she was smuggled into France, and their eventual reunion in the United States where they all survived the Holocaust as an intact family. This story sheds an important light on the reality of the Holocaust and the period before the estabishment of the more famous death camps in Poland after the war began -- a story that is often forgotten. The first people to suffer under the Nazis were the Jewish citizens in Germany during the 1930s, who lost their citizenship, their jobs, and their property. Only about half of Germany's Jews managed to leave Germany before the war. The majority who stayed behind perished in the Holocaust. Sponsored by the KWU Department of History, The KWU Alumni Association, the Smoky Hill Museum, and other private donors.
