Holocaust Survivor Esther Bauer to Visit NHTI

Esther Bauer Holocaust Survivor

In this unforgettable and moving lecture, Esther Bauer recounts her harrowing experiences as a Holocaust Survivor, and the story of her amazing, educated, and liberated mother Dr. Marie Anna Jonas, a medical doctor who was stripped of her ability to practice by the Reich Citizen Law. Esther speaks to students as often as she can so that they will "learn what happened, and see to it that it never happens again." Esther's boundless energy and joy for life is infectious, and will leave you filled with respect, awe, and appreciation for the indestructibility of the human spirit.
