B’nai B’rith Austin presents Warsaw Ghetto and Holocaust survivor Max Glauben from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, March 2 at the Temple Beth Shalom sanctuary, 7300 Hart Lane. The community is invited. In addition to Mr. Glauben’s presentation, we will show a special video “Plagues of the Soul.” The importance of this community can’t be emphasized enough, particularly for youngsters and young adults. When the Holocaust survivors are gone . . . well, you know the rest.
Max is an extraordinary speaker and a beloved person who speaks throughout the country and continues to lead groups to Europe. IN HIS OWN WORDS: “The story of the Holocaust has to be told to the new generation, but it needs to be delivered in a manner that does not create hate.”
About Max Glauben
Max Glauben was born the son of Jewish middle class parents in Warsaw, Poland, in 1928. By 1939, his family was relocated to the Warsaw Ghetto, and then transported to the Majdanek gas chambers in 1943. Most of his family members were executed, but Glauben and his father were selected for slave labor in the Budzyn Concentration Camp. After his father was killed, Glauben was sent to the Mielec, Wieliczka, and Flossenburg concentration camps. He was liberated by the United States Army on April 23, 1945. Glauben then moved to the United States in December 1947, and was drafted into the U.S. Army during the Korean War in 1951, being stationed at Fort Hood. He married and has lived in Texas ever since.
