Holocaust survivor to speak in Bloomington May 19

The Bloomington Human Rights Commission will host a Holocaust presentation.

Holocaust survivor Fred Amram will speak 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 19, at Bloomington Civic Plaza, 1800 W. Old Shakopee Road. A reception precedes the presentation at 6 p.m.

Amram will share his story of survival as a young child during the Holocaust,  beginning at age 5 in Hannover, Germany, where he lived with his mother and father. He is one of several survivors who are part of the “Transfer of Memory” photo exhibit that is on display through May 25 in the lobby of Bloomington Civic Plaza.

The exhibit, presented in partnership with Tolerance Minnesota and the Jewish Community Relations Council, features photos of Holocaust survivors living in Minnesota. Each photo shares a story of survival during difficult circumstances, reminding viewers of the value of freedom and the enduring human spirit.
