Holocaust survivor to share story on Tuesday

Apr 16, 2010
From staff reports

Holocaust survivor Nesse Godin will share her story at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Baker University Center Theatre.

Before the Nazi invasion, Godin lived with her parents and two brothers in Siauliai, Lithuania, a prominent Jewish community. When the Germans took control of her hometown in June 1940, her family was forced to move into a ghetto. For the next five years, Godin was
transported from various concentration and labor camps to a death march in January 1945.

She and her husband Jack, who is also a Holocaust survivor, immigrated to the U.S. in 1950. Since the move, Godin has dedicated her life to sharing her personal memories and translating them for others to experience through the eyes of a survivor. 

She has served for various organizations, appeared in numerous newspaper, magazine, radio and television publications, and been honored with several awards.

The Black Student Cultural Programming Board, the Office of Multicultural Programs and Hillel are sponsoring the event, which is free and open to the public.
