The Jewish and Israel Studies Program invites you to attend an upcoming talk with Holocaust (Auschwitz) Survivor, Jack Repp.

Jack Repp was born in 1923 in Radom, Poland. His family was interned in the Radom ghetto in 1941. Separated from his family, he worked in a labor camp in Radom in 1941-1942, a Radom concentration camp in 1942-1943, an ammunition factory until the end of 1943, and then was sent the Auschwitz concentration camp.

The American army eventually liberated him from a work camp in Staldach, Germany. He moved to the United States in 1949 to work for his uncle selling clothes and then settled in Dallas in 1950.

We hope to have the pleasure of your presence.
