Auschwitz survivor lectures

Holocaust survivor Ann Rosenheck describes her times and journey through two concentration camps during World War II. Rosenheck spoke at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the Troy Campus on April 20 to students and faculty. On April 21, she spoke in Sony Hall on the Dothan Campus; and on April 22, she lectured in Whitley Hall on the Montgomery Campus. The lectures were presented by the University and the Alabama Humanities Foundation’s “Witness to the Holocaust” program. Rosenheck entered Auschwitz at the age of 13 with her mother, father and sister. Only she survived. “Honestly and totally, God was with me because such young children did not survive the camps,” Rosenheck said. “The very first camp at Auschwitz, Momma helped me by telling me to lie about my age. I was pulled out of the line, away from my mother and sister and her two kids and put to a side, but that meant I went to life but my parents and my sister walked away to death.”
