We are honored and privileged to host Alberto Israel, Holocaust Survivor, who will share with us his testimony.
After trying for 50 years to bury the Holocaust in the most remote corners of his memory, Alberto Israel finally agreed to return to the scene of his martyrdom and testify. He returned to Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1995 where he collapsed and burst into sobs. “I never cried during my detention, even when my parents were taken to the gas chamber,” he said. Since then, he has continued to testify in schools, associations, town halls, and to delegations at Auschwitz-Birkenau. “I have to testify so that my family, friends and all mine who were reduced to ashes by the Nazis are not erased from the memory of humanity,” he insists.
