CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.,

April 18, 2008 – Sara Moses of St. Louis, Mo., a child survivor of the Holocaust, will visit Southeast Missouri State University April 30 and present the keynote address at the 2008 Holocaust Remembrance Program.

The presentation is scheduled for noon in the University Center Ballroom. The event is free and open to the public.

Moses will make a presentation on her personal experiences as a child survivor of the Holocaust, the human suffering it entailed, and what we should do in the contemporary world to prevent and end human atrocities, suffering and genocide. In particular, Moses will focus on the issue of bystandersᾰthose individuals and nation-states that refuse to intervene to prevent or stop human atrocities, human rights violations and genocide.

Moses and her family are originally from Piotrków, Poland, which was invaded by the Nazis and became one of the first ghettos during the Nazi Holocaust. She ultimately survived two death (extermination) camps, Ravensbrück and Bergen-Belsen. Bergen-Belsen is the camp where Anne Frank died as a result of typhoid and starvation.

Moses became an artist in the United States and has delivered many presentations to schools, colleges and churches. Furthermore, she has been interviewed on numerous radio shows. Most recently, she was interviewed by Laura Ingraham and Glen Beck. She is a recipient of Ingrahm’s Power to the People award.
