CANCELLED Guest Lecture: Ron Schwarz, UW Alum and son of a Holocaust survivor
April 1, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, this event has been cancelled. It may be rescheduled for Fall 2020, but it is uncertain at this time.
Ron Schwarz is the son of Holocaust Survivor Charles Schwarz. As a boy, Charles lived in Nazi Germany before fleeing to France, witnessed the German occupation of France, and completed the treacherous mountain crossing of the French-Swiss border. Ron’s grandparents endured the Nazis in Germany including internment at Dachau and the seizing of their personal property. As a second-generation speaker, Ron uses a multimedia presentation to share his father’s and grandparents’ daring journey and teach the lessons of the Holocaust.
Exact time and location TBD. This event will take place in the evening.
