Forsyth Tech will host a presentation by Holocaust survivor, Hank Brodt of High Point, on Monday, December 15 at noon. The location of Mr. Brodt’s presentation has been moved to the Auditorium on Forsyth Tech’s West Campus, 1300 Bolton Street in Winston-Salem, to accommodate the expected crowd, including nearly 200 students from the Winston-Salem Forsyth County School System.
Mr. Brodt will share the inspiring story of how his life was forever changed in “The Holocaust: A Survivor’s Story,” after having spent time in five different Nazi concentration camps during World War II.
This presentation is free and open to the public. The media is invited to attend.
This presentation is being made possible through support from Guy Blynn who established The Blynn Holocaust Collection at Forsyth Tech’s Library on Main Campus, which contains a repository of materials intended to help raise awareness of the Holocaust and its consequences.
