CORVALLIS, Ore. – Holocaust survivor Stephen Nassar, who was 13 when he was deported to Auschwitz in 1944, will speak at Oregon State University in Corvallis Monday, April 29, as part of the university’s 33rd annual Holocaust Memorial Week.
Nasser, who now lives in Nevada, was the only survivor among his 21-member family of Hungarian Jews. While he was imprisoned, he kept a diary that later served as the basis for his memoir, “My Brother’s Voice,” and a play, “Not Yet, Pista.”
Nasser’s talk will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the LaSells Stewart Center, 875 SW 26th St. Copies of Nasser’s book will be available for purchase and he will sign books following the lecture. The talk is free but attendees are encouraged to reserve free tickets in advance to secure a seat. Tickets can be obtained online at http://bit.ly/2Gb4LTK.
