University of Lynchburg and the Holocaust Education Foundation of Central Virginia will host a reading by author John Guzlowski on Tuesday, March 15, at 7 p.m. in Hopwood Auditorium.
Guzlowski was born in a refugee camp in Germany after World War II to parents who had been Polish slave laborers in Nazi Germany during the war. In 1951, the family came to America, where Guzlowski met many immigrants who had been impacted by the war, including concentration camp survivors, soldiers, and refugees.
He is the author of several books related to the Holocaust and the WWII, including “Echoes of Tattered Tongues,” a collection of poems about his family’s experience in the war and its aftermath.
Other books by Guzlowski include “Lightning and Ashes” and “The Third Winter of War: Buchenwald.”
A reception will follow the reading.
Hopwood Auditorium is located on the second floor of Hopwood Hall.
