Holocaust Survivor to Speak (30 March 2015)

Eva Schloss, Holocaust survivor and educator for global peace, will speak Monday, March 30, at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.

Schloss’ presentation, “Hiding, Betrayal, Survival: The Life and Times of Anne Frank and Eva Schloss,” will be at 6 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Memorial Student Center.

The event is free and open to the public.

In 1938, Germany invaded Austria. Jewish families fled, including eight-year-old Eva Geiringer. Eva and her family moved first to Belgium and then to Holland, where one of her neighbors was a German-Jewish girl of the same age. __ Ultimately, both girls and their families were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. Eva’s friend did not survive Auschwitz but kept a now-famous diary that did. Her name was Anne Frank. __ After raising a family of her own, Eva Geiringer Schloss has devoted herself for the past 30 years to Holocaust education and global peace. Schloss, 85, who lives in England, still travels the world to speak. Her stop in Menomonie is part of a five campus tour of Wisconsin.

Schloss will be accompanied on stage by Darryle Clott, of Viterbo University of La Crosse, who teaches the history of the Holocaust and leads Holocaust educator workshops.

“With growing conflict across the globe and here at home, there is no better time to listen to and learn from Ms. Schloss’ experience and to be reminded that history does repeat itself if we do not pay attention. We are so fortunate to work with Viterbo University in bringing her to Wisconsin for this visit,” said Mary McManus, UW-Stout Ally Initiatives coordinator, the event director.

Schloss’ visit is sponsored by the Provost’s Office; College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; College of Education, Health and Human Sciences; College of Management; College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics; Dean of Students Office and Student Services; Center for Applied Ethics; and the Involvement Center and Ally Initiatives.
