Holocaust Survivor from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Rozsa Lecture "Survivor: A Conversation with a Holocaust Survivor from the Survivors Speakers Bureau of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum”

The Museum’s Office of Survivor Affairs is proud to offer schools, civic groups, military bases, and other institutions nationwide the opportunity to hear a Holocaust survivor share his or her experiences. Every year, our survivor speakers reach hundreds of different audiences, providing thousands of people across the country and abroad with the moving and memorable experience of listening to them recount their stories of suffering, loss, and survival.

The speaker will be Peter Gorog, born Péter Grünwald in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, on March 10, 1941. Peter’s father, Árpád Grünwald, worked as an office manager at the Franklin Publishing House and his mother, Olga Schönfeld, was a hat-maker. Hear his story, and learn how his experience can inform society today.

Peter was an amazing speaker. With his photos, I was able to picture the events he talked about. Listening to a survivor from a country that was not Germany, gave me an even bigger picture of the inhumane way Jewish people were treated. With the knowledge we have today of the cruel and inhumane way people of past generations treated each other, we should make sure that we NEVER treat each other with anything else but kindness, respect and above all LOVE!!
