ABOUT THE GUEST

Inge Auerbacher spent three years as a child imprisoned in Terezin concentration camp in Czechoslovakia, where only one percent of the 15,000 imprisoned children survived.

She immigrated to the United States with her parents in 1946 and became a successful chemist and an accomplished writer. She’s the author of six books including I Am A Star: Child of the Holocaust.

Auerbacher travels to around the world to speak about the Holocaust, tolerance, and human rights. Her numerous awards and honors include the Ellis Island Medal of Honor and the Federal Cross of Merit given by the President of Germany.
