Holocaust survivor speaks Thursday at ONU

4 p.m. in English Chapel in recognition of Holocaust Day of Remembrance

Conrad Weiner, a Holocaust survivor, will share his story during a talk at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, in the English Chapel at Ohio Northern University. 

Weiner is a survivor of the forced labor camp Budi in Transnistria. After a brief occupation of the region by the Soviet Army in 1941, Romanian authorities in alliance with German forces started a massive campaign of annihilation and deportation of Jews to Transnistria.

At 3 1/2 years old, Weiner was forced into a labor camp. After a brief occupation, he and 300 other survivors of the camp were liberated and repatriated to Romania.

The talk is part of the Holocaust Day of Remembrance at ONU.
