Holocaust Remembrance Service at Alverno College

March 10, 2014

Holocaust Survivor Walter Reed will tell is powerful story of survival on Wednesday April 2 @ Noon in Pitman Theatre at Alverno College. Talk back to follow.

Born in 1924, Walter Reed grew up in one of 26 Jewish families in a farming village of about 1,000 people. During Kristallnacht in November 1938, when Nazi stormtroopers looted Jewish businesses and burned synagogues, Reed and his family were confronted by the brown shirts: “One morning, there was a loud knock on our front door of our house, and a bunch of brown-shirted (Nazi) party members were out there with a truck, and they yelled ‘Raus! Raus!’ ‘Raus’ in German means ‘get the hell out,’ ” he said. “They grabbed my dad and me, put us on the truck and took us to the nearby county (jail). Reed spent five days in a jail cell before being released due to his youth, but his father was sent to Dachau.

Please join us for a very powerful hour.

The event is free and open to the public.
