Holocaust survivor Marion Blumenthal Lazan Spoke to a Crowd of Over 300 at Lumina Theater

On January 23, Holocaust survivor and award-winning author, Marion Blumenthal Lazan spoke to a crowd of over 300 at Lumina Theater.

Lazan recalled the brutal reality of the six and a half years she and her family were forced to live in refugee and prison camps that included Westerbork in Holland and Bergen-Belsen in Germany.

In particular, she spoke about a game she would play that involved finding four perfect pebbles. The pebbles represented each of her family members, and if she found all four, she knew her family was safe. The game gave her hope during a time despair.

Lazan’s memoir, Four Perfect Pebbles, recalls the devastating years of her childhood. For more information about Lazan and/or to purchase her memoir, visit www.fourperfectpebbles.com

The event was ponsored by the College of Health and Human Services, the School of Social Work and the Department of Philosophy and Religion.
