Holocaust Survivor to Share Her Story of Survival at CSUB

Greenstein at CSUB in 2013The CSUB Institute for Religion, Education, and Public Policy (IREPP) invites the community to hear the story of Dorothy Greenstein, “The Courage and Faith of a Child Holocaust Survivor,” on Tuesday May 6th at 7pm in the Student Union Multi-purpose room.

Greenstein’s story is of a brave little girl who survived the Holocaust through faith and hope. After the war, she made her way to Los Angeles where she married and had two children. Greenstein has dedicated herself to bearing witness to the victims of the Holocaust through her teaching at schools, universities, and the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.

“Dorothy Greenstein’s visit to CSUB provides an extraordinary opportunity to learn about a child’s survival in the Holocaust,” said Steve Campagna-Pinto, Director of CSUB IREPP. “Dorothy’s story teaches us of the need to overcome our indifference to others and to embrace the courage to act to stop the inhumanity of man wherever we see it.”

Greenstein’s lecture is sponsored in part by the office of CSUB Provost Dr. Soraya Coley. The lecture is free and open to the public, with free parking in lot K. For more information, contact Angela Hullah at 654-6263 or ahullah@csub.edu.
