Elly Gotz’s Story: The Ghetto, Dachau, and Liberation

Monday, March 12, 2018
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Elly Gotz lived in Kaunas, Lithuania with his parents, Sonja and Julius Gotz. When he was 13, the Nazis confined them to the Kovno Ghetto, along with 29,000 other Lithuanian Jews. After two years in the ghetto, Elly and his father were separated from his mother and sent to Dachau concentration camp. They remained there until the camp was liberated in April, 1945. In this talk Elly relates his experiences in both the Kovno Ghetto and Dachau to teach an important lesson about tolerance.
