MSJC to host Holocaust Survivor lecture

David Faber will speak on Oct. 13 at the San Jacinto Campus
 
Come to Mt. San Jacinto College on Oct. 13, 2011 to hear the inspiring, true story of a man who survived nine concentration camps during WWII while he was still a teenager.
 
Guest lecturer David Faber, a Holocaust survivor and author, will share his story from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the San Jacinto Theater on the San Jacinto Campus, 1499 N. State St. San Jacinto, CA 92583
 
The event, offered by the MSJC chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa honors society and the Diversity Committee, is $5 per person and is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased at the San Jacinto Campus Theater box office or by calling 951-487-3790.
 
Seating will be provided on a first come first served basis. Space may be limited so please arrive early.
 
This event is part of this semester’s Honors in Action project. The project is investigating whether the democratization of information we are experiencing today will prevent another Holocaust scale atrocity in the future. Proceeds from the tickets sales will help the MSJC Phi Theta Kappa chapter put on more great events in the future and for a scholarship prize for a campus-wide essay contest related to our project.
 
This event marks the third time Mr. Faber has come to MSJC to give a riveting and heart-breaking account of his life. Mr. Faber was born in 1926 and suffered Nazi persecution from 1939 to 1945. During the Holocaust, he witnessed the murder of his parents and six of his seven siblings. He was imprisoned in eight different concentration camps, including Auschwitz. Mr. Faber is a nationally acclaimed speaker and is devoted to the promise he made to his mother, "to tell the world" his story.
 
Mr. Faber will discuss his experiences during the Holocaust and his book “Because of Romek: A Holocaust Survivor’s Memoir”.
 
Signed copies of Mr. Faber’s paperback  "Because of Romek: A Holocaust Survivor's Memoir" will be sold at the event for $15 each. http://www.msjc.edu/PublicInformationOffice/Documents/HolocaustLectureFlyer.pdf
