Holocaust survivor Irving Roth will be speaking at the Spokane Convention Center June 5 at 7 p.m. in an event hosted by the Chabad of Spokane County.
Roth was born in Kosice, Czechoslovakia in 1929 and survived both the Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps. After immigrating to the U.S. in 1947 he became an internationally-known writer and educator regarding the Holocaust, and has spent his time traveling the world educating audiences about anti-Semitism.
Because there are so few survivors still alive, Roth could possibly be the last Holocaust Survivor to visit Spokane.
“As time passes the opportunities to hear these first-hand accounts are fleeting,” said Rabbi Yisroel Hahnin an announcement regarding the speaker. “With very few Holocaust survivors among the living, this may be your very last chance to hear these incredible stories and first-hand accounts.”
Tickets cost $20, and can be bought online.
