Holocaust Survivor Ronnie Breslow to Tell Life Story, April 5

By cmacchi | April 2, 2013

Ronnie Breslow, a Holocaust survivor, will share her life story in a lecture on Friday, April 5, at 4 p.m. in the Dining Complex, Room 103. The event is free and open to the whole campus.

Born in Germany, Breslow tells the amazing story of her family’s trials of fleeing Nazi Germany, being denied entry to Cuba, and once again successfully departing a detention camp for the United States. Her unlikely story details how a childhood stamp collection saved her family’s lives.

As part of the Witness to History Project, Breslow speaks to educate current generations on lessons learned in history. “If we forget the lessons of the past, we are surely to allow history to repeat itself, if not with the Jews, with the Irish, the Italians, the Africans, the Americans,” she says. “Let us not forget.”

Breslow’s lecture is hosted on campus by an Arcadia course, ID 381: Americans in Paris.
