Holocaust Survivor Martin Lowenberg Speaks at SLDL

Holocaust survivor Martin Lowenberg shares his powerful story of survival at Spring Lake District Library on Tuesday, May 13, at 6:30 p.m. As a youth in Nazi Germany, Lowenberg and his family were initially sent to a Jewish ghetto and then deported to a series of different concentration camps. At the time of his liberation at the age of 17, Lowenberg weighed 76 pounds.

 

“Never again should we or our children or our grandchildren and so on, ever know of the horrors which I experienced in the twelve years of my youth from age 5 till 17, from 1933-1945,” said Lowenberg, who is active with Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus in Farmington Hills, Mich. “We should never forget and we should always remember.” Lowenberg travels extensively to share his story in the hopes that future genocides may be prevented.
