Henry Golde, 76, will share his story of survival, hate and love as he experienced it first-hand as a Jew in WWII Europe.

Golde is an experienced speaker known for using humor to enliven his stories and make them accessible to audiences.

Golde was just 11 years old when German solders separated him from his family in Poland. He spent the next five years in 10 different concentration camps, enduring illness, work camps, and death all around him. His hope is that by sharing his memories and message, another Holocaust can be prevented.

The event is sponsored by the UWFox Campus Activities Board. For more information, call Jeff Kuepper, student activities director at UWFox, at (920) 832-2671 or email jeff.kuepper@uwc.edu.
