Holocaust Survivor Speaks to Campus on Oct. 1

Holocaust survivor Pieter Kohnstam will speak virtually with the University of Arkansas at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1. This will be a question and answer format. Please send questions ahead of time to Toby Klein: tlklein@uark.edu

All are encouraged to RSVP for this rare opportunity to ask questions of an incredible man with an incredible story. Kohnstam's family lived below the Frank family, and Kohnstam grew up knowing Anne Frank, who was seven years his senior. His incredible story is documented both on his website and in his 2006 book A Chance to Live: A Family's Journey to Freedom. Two copies of his book are available to check-out at Mullins Library.
