DuBois – Nesse Godin, a survivor of the Holocaust, will share her memories and experiences at Penn State DuBois in October.  The community is invited to hear her speak, free of charge.  


Godin was 13 years old when the Nazis began to kill and imprison her people.  Following the Nazi takeover, Godin was forced into the Stutthoff Concentration Camp, and survived life in four other labor camps and a death march before liberation.


Godin's story has appeared in national publications, TV documentaries, and radio programs.  She has been presented with the Eli Wiesel Holocaust Remembrance Medal in recognition of her dedication to remember the victims of the Holocaust and for teaching the consequences of hatred.


In 1950, Godin and her husband moved to the United States, settling in the Washington D.C. area.


Godin is scheduled to speak at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, October 25, in the Hiller Auditorium at Penn State DuBois.  Her appearance is part of the Penn State DuBois Performing Arts and Lecture Series.  For more information, contact the Student Life Office at (814) 375-4764, or studentactivities@psu.edu
