In 1945 my father was liberated from Buchenwald Concentration camp. Soon after he and my mother emigrated to the USA with only four suitcases in hand. They began a new life, family and careers. This country offered them hope and a safe haven to raise their family. They had witnessed first hand how easily little seeds of bigotry and racism can explode into full-blown hatred. He spent the latter years of his life lecturing to students a message of tolerance, peace and acceptance. Please support our country’s fundamental principal of welcoming people of all kinds.
