Alfred Schnog, guest lecturer at the Watson College of Education Alfred Schnog, a Wilmington resident and WWII Holocaust survivor and activist, will return to the UNCW campus to provide a guest lecture at the Watson College of Education in November. Born in Cologne, Germany in 1931, Schnog and his family escaped Nazi Germany in 1938 on the morning after Kristallnacht.  

After decades of silence, Schnog began to share his story, and in recent years he’s been a featured speaker at middle schools, high schools, colleges and communities throughout North Carolina. Mr. Schnog first spoke at the Watson College in October 2012, at an event attended by more than 150 students and faculty members.

The presentation, which will be held Thursday, November 21 in EB 162 from 6-7:30 pm, is open to faculty, staff, students and the community.
