Holocaust Survivor David Faber to Speak at Keene State
KEENE, N.H., 4/2/07 - David Faber, a Holocaust survivor and author of Because of Romek: A Holocaust Survivor’s Memoir, will speak on Wednesday, April 11, at 4:30 p.m. in the Lantern Room of the Student Center at Keene State College.
Faber was born in 1926 and suffered Nazi persecution from 1939 to 1945. During the Holocaust, he witnessed the murder of his parents and six of his seven siblings. He was imprisoned in eight different concentration camps, including Auschwitz. Faber’s book describes his experiences in the ghettos and concentration camps.
Faber travels around the nation, fulfilling the promise he made to his mother, “to tell the world,” because he wants to stop hate. “We must not forget what has happened,” Faber said. “We must teach our children love, not hate. We must remember the men and women who gave their life for the freedom of the world.”
This event is sponsored by the Cohen Center for Holocaust Studies and is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Theresa Masiello at 358-2490.
