Public Talk: Henry Friedman
Austin Auditorium, LaSells Stewart Center, OSU
*Event is free but tickets are required. Tickets are available online at: http://bit.ly/2FTKhzG
Henry Friedman, who was born in Poland and now resides in Seattle, will speak of his experiences during the war. Almost the entire Jewish population of the city where Friedman was born perished in the Holocaust. He and his family survived only because a young Ukrainian woman warned them that the ghetto where they lived would soon be liquidated. They found refuge, but the months that they lived in hiding were marked by extreme hunger and constant fear of betrayal, and these issues tore at the family fabric. Henry Friedman’s memoir, I’m No Hero: Journeys of a Holocaust Survivor, will be available for purchase after his talk.
