The Air Force Academy will observe the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Nazi concentration camps with a Holocaust remembrance event.
The academy says Sam Lauber, a Holocaust survivor and an Air Force veteran, will speak on “A Hidden Child’s Story” at a luncheon on Thursday.
Lauber will reflect on his childhood in Nazi-occupied Europe and recount the kindness of Europeans who risked arrest, deportation and death to hide Jews.
National Holocaust Remembrance Day is April 11. The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum has designated “Stories of Freedom: What You Do Matters” as the theme.
