Lesson of the Past: An evening with an Auschwitz survivor

7:00 p.m.

 

Holocaust survivor Mary Bauer was just a teenager in Budapest, Hungary when she and her mother were deported and imprisoned at the Auschwitz concentration camp. While there, Bauer was forced to weave the shorn hair from fellow prisoners into items used in the Nazi war effort. Mary and her mother would later be forced to take part in the Auschwitz Death March along with 60,000 prisoners. The women would survive unlike 15,000 others.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel was 15 when his family was deported to Auschwitz. His best selling memoir Night details his harrowing experience during his time at the death camp.
