Holocaust Survivor to Speak at Meredith September 28

Holocaust survivor Morris Glass will share his story with the Meredith College community on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 10 a.m. in Jones Chapel. His talk is part of The Gathering, Meredith’s weekly informal chapel service. The talk will last 45 minutes and will end in time for the 11 a.m. class change. This event qualifies as an Academic / Cultural Event in 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.

Glass and Meredith Professor Emerita of History Carolyn Happer are co-authors of “Chosen for Destruction: The Story of a Holocaust Survivor,” which tells Glass’ life story. Happer, who has taught history at Meredith since 1986, met Morris Glass when he spoke at the 2007 North Carolina Holocaust Commemoration service, held at Meredith College.

Copies of the book will be available in the chapel lobby.
