Holocaust survivor speaks at NMU

MARQUETTE — A survivor of one of worst atrocities in history gave an important presentation earlier tonight.

Holocaust survivor Martin Lowenberg spoke before a packed crowd at NMU, where he chronicled his life as a German Jew pre–WWII, through his time in concentration camps, and his journey to America after the war.

According to Lowenberg, there is no place in the world for hate, and hate serves to benefit no one.

The talk comes in wake of the 81st anniversary of the Night of Broken Glass, where hundreds of Jewish businesses and synagogues were destroyed by the Nazi party across Germany and Austria, which Lowenberg was a witness of.

Much like we remember the plight and struggles of our veterans, we must also remember what the power of hate can bring.

Lowenberg urged everyone in the audience to treat people with compassion, honesty and love.
