Born in Poland in 1930, Walter Kase and his family were swept up in the events of the holocaust in 1939 when they were given 15 minutes to leave their house and move to the ghetto. During the war he endured forced labor camps and five concentration camps including Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. Mr. Kase will talk about his experiences and discuss the lasting impact of the Holocaust
