Holocaust lecture series held at Birmingham library


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — A lecture series featuring Holocaust survivors living in Birmingham kicked off Wednesday. The series is presented by the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center and the Birmingham Public Library.

It’s the group’s way of preserving stories of eye witnesses who lived under Nazi domination.

Robert May, a doctor from Birmingham, talked about the things he saw and experienced during his 88 years of life.

May discussed experiences ranging from concentration camps to living in the Southeast. He was nothing but high praise for America.

“Nowhere else but in the United States could a little boy from Germany be successful, have a family after this sort of a background,” May said.

The Birmingham Public Library will host two more Holocaust lectures in March.

They begin at noon on March 19 and March 26. The lectures will be held in the Arrington Auditorium of the Linn-Henley Research Library.
