Story of Survival
Holocaust survivor Henry Greenbaum (seated in front row in photo) shared his amazing story with a capacity crowd in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre as part of the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership’s 2006–07 lecture series.
Greenbaum was a child in 1942 when he and three of his sisters were taken by the Nazis to work at a munitions factory at a forced labor camp. When he and one of his sisters tried to escape, she was killed, and he survived being shot in the head. He went on to survive another forced labor camp, a death march, and a concentration camp.
Greenbaum’s visit was courtesy of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Over the past year, Viterbo has sponsored the appearance of a number of holocaust survivors in a series that has been characterized by huge crowds. Greenbaum described the reception he received from the Viterbo audience as the “best I have ever received.”
