Born as Cecilia Landau in Hamburg, Germany, in 1925, Lucille Eichengreen would as a teenager endure the brunt of the Holocaust. During World War II, she survived the Lodz Ghetto, Auschwitz, and Bergen-Belsen. Her mother died of starvation in Lodz, while her father and sister were murdered in the camps. After liberation, she assisted the British in identifying and bringing to justice more than forty German camp personnel, but this service brought death threats and she moved to the U.S. She has spoken widely of what she saw and experienced during the war and has been much honored for this educational work, particularly in Germany. Her memoir, From Ashes to Life, tells her story in detail.

This event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required to be admitted into the auditorium. Please reserve your free tickets here.
