Holocaust survivor to speak at TROY's Dothan Campus

Posted: Friday, 10 April 2009

DOTHAN – Holocaust survivor Ann Rosenheck will share her harrowing and inspiring story during a talk at Troy University on Saturday, April 25.

The program is sponsored by Temple Emanu-el in Dothan and TROY. It will begin at 3 p.m. in Sony Hall inside the Library Technology building on the Dothan Campus.

Admission is free and open to the public.

Rosenheck was 13 and living in Hungary when her family was captured by the Nazis and taken to the Auschwitz concentration camp. By war’s end, 92 members of her family had been killed, including her grandmother, a brother, a sister and both of her parents.

She was freed during the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp in 1945 and later immigrated to the United States. Today, Rosenheck shares her story with the public in spite of the pain it causes her.

“I hope that we are not going to be forgotten; that we will be remembered,” she said.
