The Penn State Harrisburg Center for Holocaust and Jewish Studies presents a lecture by Holocaust survivor David Tuck on Wednesday, March 21, at 11:00 a.m. in the Oliver LaGrone Cultural Arts Center, Room W132 in the Olmsted Building.

David Tuck was born in Poland. He was 10 years old when Germany invaded in 1939, and his family was sent to the Lodz ghetto. David was later moved to labor and concentration camps at Posen, Auschwitz, Mauthausen, and Güsen II. His time in the camps was spent working with food rations, on autobahn construction, and on anti-aircraft gun and aircraft manufacturing.

On May 5, 1945, American forces liberated Güsen II. David weighed just 78 pounds at the time. He spent the next several months recuperating in refugee camps, and immigrated to the United States in 1950. Come hear David’s remarkable story. Light refreshments will be served.

This event is free and open to the public.
