Holocaust Survivor to Speak at Grand Valley State University
Tomorrow night, Wednesday, February 27th, Grand Valley State University students will host a presentation by Martin Löwenberg, who survived the Holocaust of World War II, and moved to the U.S. in 1964.
It will be a wonderful opportunity for anyone wishing to meet Löwenberg, as he will share his story of survival in Nazi Germany.
The student organization, Hillel, which provides opportunities for Jewish students at more than 500 colleges and universities to explore and celebrate their Jewish identity, is hosting Lowenberg during their Genocide Awareness Night from 6-7:30 p.m., in the Grand River Room of the Kirkhof Center on the Allendale Campus.
The group hopes to raise awareness and educate the GVSU campus community about genocide. The night will start with a discussion led by students about the impact of genocide on different regions and cultures. Löwenberg’s presentation will follow.
The event is free and open the public.
