第二次世界大戰被認定為二十世纪人類社會最大的一場戰爭，歐洲作為其中一個主戰場更因反猶太主的義崛起而令當地猶太人承受大規模的迫害，繼而進行有計劃的種族滅絕。事隔六十年，仍然有不少倖存者挺身而出，為這場浩劫作見證。香港大學專業進修學院與香港猶太大屠殺及寬容中心合作舉辦公開講座，邀請集中營倖存者 Mr. Henry Friedman 到 HKU SPACE 分享。
SPEAKER: Henry Friedman
|Born in Poland in 1928, Henry Friedman will share his personal story of survival during the Holocaust. Henry, his mother, his brother, and a young teacher - who had been hired by his father when Jews were forbidden to attend school - were hidden in a loft over the animal stalls at a neighbour's farm. Like many other survivors, Henry has found it difficult to confront his past. Like others, too, he has felt the obligation to bear witness. Today, he devotes much of his time to telling his story, which he believes is a message of hope. Henry has received recognition for his role in establishing the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.|
