Triumph over Madness: A WWII/Holocaust Story (VIRTUAL)

Triumph over Madness: A WWII/Holocaust Story (VIRTUAL)
Thursday, September 24th at 6:30 pm

This is a virtual Zoom program. Email Kim in order to receive the link to attend.

Peter Stern is a second generation speaker through the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education. He has been telling his father's story for the last two years. He recently retired as CEO of Currus, Inc. and also serves as President of the Board of Governors of the Ninth Infantry Division Association which is the division his father served in during WWII.

Peter will share his father’s story which is fairly unique. He was born Jewish in 1919 in Berlin, Germany. He experienced much persecution in the 1930s, his father was sent to prison by the Gestapo, he was kicked out of school and his family was broken up. He luckily was able to come to the USA on a visa in August, 1936. While learning English, he completed high school and college in Cincinnati and then joined the Army. He served in the Ninth Infantry Division for all eight military campaigns in North Africa and Europe. Because of his German and French language skills, he interviewed and interrogated German prisoners for much of the war. He was with his division when they liberated the Nordhausen slave labor camp in Germany in April, 1945. He truly is both a survivor of Nazi persecution and a liberator.
