HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR IRVING ROTH TO SHARE HIS STORY WITH COMMUNITY AND STUDENTS

During the Holocaust, Irving Roth survived a death march as well as internment at Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps. On Monday, November 19 he will be in Topeka to share his amazing story of sorrow and profound loss, but also of survival, resistance, and love. He shares his testimony with grace, humor, and love, allowing all who hear him to reflect on the importance of tolerance, love, and acceptance, all while warning about the dangers of stereotypes, exclusion, and generalizations.

The community presentation is free and open to the public and will be held on Monday, November 19th at 5:30 pm in the Washburn Rural High School auditorium. Seating will be limited on a first come, first served basis.

Earlier in the day on Monday, Mr. Roth will share his presentation with 8th grade students from Washburn Rural Middle School and some students from Washburn Rural High School.

This special visit is made possible by a generous grant from the Auburn-Washburn Public Schools Foundation. It is being coordinated by WRMS English teacher Megan Fairchild. Fairchild is a Teaching Fellow with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and a fellow with the Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust and Human Rights Education in New York City. She met Irving Roth this past summer and is excited to bring about this evening of education, understanding, and compassion.

After the presentation Roth will have his book, Bondi’s Brother, available for sale and signing.
