Holocaust Survivor Esther Bauer speaks at Bay College

9/18/2015
 
Esther Bauer will be speaking at Bay College on her final tour.
 
Bay College Campus Activities Board and the Bay College Diversity Committee are proud to host Holocaust Survivor Esther Bauer.  Born in Hamburg, Germany in 1924, Esther’s father was the principal of a Jewish Girls School, and her mother was a medical doctor. On July 19th, 1942, Esther and her parents were deported to the Theresienstadt ghetto in Czechoslovakia, where her father died six months later.  After two years she married when she found that her now husband was to be sent to the city of Dresden to build a new Ghetto.  The men were instead sent to Auschwitz, where later both Esther and her mother were sent.  Of the three, only Esther survived.

In this unforgettable and moving lecture, Esther Bauer recounts her harrowing experiences as a Holocaust Survivor. Esther speaks to students as often as she can so they will “learn what happened, and see to it that it never happens again”. Esther’s bounding energy and joy for life is infectious, and will leave you filled with respect and appreciation for the indestructability of the human spirit.
