Discussion:A Survivor Story

Thursday, December 20

As the Holocaust falls deeper into history, hearing about the atrocities perpetrated by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party becomes ever more imperative. And there are few stories as chilling as Philip Gans' recollections of his days in Auschwitz. Captured at age 15, Gans spent nearly two years there enduring beatings and grueling slave labor. He witnessed the death of his entire family and almost didn't make it out alive. Gans comes to The [email protected] this Thursday to relive his experiences so we can remember one of man's darkest hours. It may not be the cheeriest event to attend this holiday season, but it could be the most important. Thurs., Dec. 20, 7 p.m., 620 First Ave. S., St. Pete, 727-895-6620, free admission, thestudioat620.org.
