The opportunity to hear the first-person account of a Holocaust survivor is often a once in a lifetime experience. Join us on April 5, 2017, as Ben Walker shares his story.

Ben Walker was born near Czernowitz, Romania, an area that is now the Ukraine. On November 20, 1940, Romania formally joined the Axis alliance. In 1941, Ben and his family were deported to Transnistria, an occupied territory in northeast Romania where Romanian authorities established several de facto ghettos and two concentration camps. Between 1941 and 1944, German and Romanian authorities murdered or caused the deaths of between 150,000 and 250,000 Romanian and Ukrainian Jews in Transnistria. Ben and his mother were the only members of his family to survive.

This program is presented in cooperation with the 1-9 Field Artillery.
