Holocaust survivor Morris Glass will speak at Meredith on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 10 a.m. in Jones Chapel. This event qualifies as an academic cultural event for general education.
Glass is a Holocaust survivor who was 11 years old when the Nazis invaded Poland. He spent four and a half years in ghettos in his hometown and in Lodz (the longest lasting ghetto), two months in Auschwitz-Birkenau, and eight months in five camps that were part of the Dachau camp system. During those years, he lost his youth, his home, and his father, mother, and two sisters. Out of 42 close family members only he, his brother, and a first cousin survived.
“Holocaust survivors are in their mid to late 80s now; we are in our last years for the opportunity to hear these first hand stories, and Morris tells his poignant story so well,” said Chaplain Stacy Pardue. “My hope is that any faculty members that have classes with relevant material will strongly encourage their students to attend, that retirees will join us, and our whole community will support this event in any way possible.”
Glass co-wrote his memoir, “Chosen for Destruction: The Story of a Holocaust Survivor,” with Meredith Professor Emerita Carolyn Happer. The book will be available for purchase during the event.
