WHO: Eva Schloss is the childhood friend and stepsister of Anne Frank and a survivor of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Since 1985, she has devoted herself to Holocaust education and global peace. She has recounted her wartime experiences in more than one thousand speaking engagements, written three books and had a play written about her life.
WHY: Soon all Holocaust survivors will be gone; this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear from one of the individuals who survived the horror of that dark period in history. Schloss will be traveling from London to share her story of triumph and survival with the Oklahoma City community. Her story is sensational and difficult to imagine. Yet, her insightful message reminds us that life is precious and fragile, the creative spirit is stronger than fear, the power of good is immeasurable and love makes a difference.
