Wednesday, November 9, 2016 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

The number of opportunities to listen, in person, to survivors of the Holocaust describe their tragic experiences and inspire us with their wisdom are passing; therefore, it is with honor and respect that the Northwest Center for Holocaust, Genocide and Ethnocide Education welcomes Mrs. Noémi Ban to Western Washington University’s campus.

Mrs.  Ban’s story is one of loss, tragedy, resiliency, hope, and inspiration. A survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Mrs. Ban lost her mother, grandmother, and younger sister and brother to the horrors of the death camps, and she later was imprisoned in the slave labor camp at Buchenwald. After the Holocaust, she was witness to the 1956 Soviet repression of the anti-communist uprising in Hungary. Later in life, Mrs. Ban also experienced her husband Earnest’s attenuated struggle with aphasia, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease. Her belief that sharing is healing has brought her once more to Western’s campus, where she will speak of her experience. 

Join us in Arntzen 100 for this talk.
