Holocaust Memorial Week

Oregon State University’s 34th annual observance of Holocaust Memorial Week will feature a talk by speaker and author Marion Blumenthal Lazan, a Holocaust survivor who spent nearly four years of her childhood in concentration camps.

In the late 1930s, the Blumenthal family escaped Nazi Germany and settled in the Netherlands. However in 1942, when Lazan was 4 years old, they were seized and deported to the first in a series of concentration camps, including Bergen-Belsen, regarded as one of the most notorious and deadly camps during the last phase of World War II. Lazan, known for her Holocaust memoir, “Four Perfect Pebbles,” and for giving talks around the world about her experiences, will speak at 7 p.m. Monday, April 5, via Zoom. Click here to register.

Holocaust Memorial Week is presented by the School of History, Philosophy and Religion in OSU’s College of Liberal Arts. Major sponsors include Beit Am, the city of Corvallis, the Office of the Provost and the Center for the Humanities. All events are free and open to the public.
