Holocaust Survivor Felicia Graber to Give Inspiring Lecture at Meramec

January 27, 2010

Join the Meramec campus community at 2 p.m. on Feb. 2, in Student Center 200 for a free lecture by Felicia Graber. Ms. Graber will relate how she and her parents managed to survive in Poland during the Nazi Occupation. With amazing courage, as well as a dose of good luck, Felicia and her parents assumed the identity of a Polish, Catholic family. While they found refuge with a Catholic, Polish farm family, they lived in constant fear of being captured by the Nazis. They were always only “one step away” from being deported to a concentration camp.

Ms. Graber is the founder of the Hidden Child/Child Survivor Group of St. Louis and the co-founder of the St. Louis Descendants of the Holocaust, a group of children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and victims. She is a member of the Memory Project at the St. Louis Holocaust Museum and Learning Center. Her writings have been published in the Sagarin Review, The First Harvest, The New Harvest, as well as in various magazines and newsletters nationwide. She is a contributor to the child-survivor anthology And Life is Changed Forever, published by Wayne University Press, 2006.
